A new tool available from Microsoft is now available to make it easier for Mac users to make the switch to a Surface. Simply called Mac to Surface Assistant, the tool hasn't been formally announced by Microsoft but was spotted by WalkingCat on Twitter.
If you're familiar with other platform migration tools, then Mac to Surface Assistant shouldn't contain many surprises. When you first load the tool up, you're greeted with a message telling you that it can help you move things like photos, movies and documents to your Surface. Clicking "Continue" takes you to a screen where you can select all of the categories and folders you want to move over, along with their sizes. You can then set a destination disk for the files, where the tool will then create a Zip file with everything you selected.
It's a pretty neat tool that certainly simplifies the process of moving any local files from one machine to another. That said, anyone who relies on the cloud may find the assistant somewhat redundant. If you want to check it out for yourself, you can download the Mac to Surface Assistant at the link below.
