setting up new laptop

Hi All

 

Wondering if I can get some guidance on setting up a surface pro and moving my data to this machine. Are there any specific steps to ensure my data does not get affected adversely? I have connected my onedrive account to the surface pro, just installed power bi desktop...should it be just as simple as navigating to the folder and opening my file?

As long as you have the PBIX files for your reports, you should be fine. If there's any access issues, just reenter your credentials or redirect the source for your data to its new location.

 

Note that if any of your files used local data (Excel stored on a local machine), you won't be able to access it in query editor or refresh without having the file on your new machine.
