Using Graphlink to Transfer Files You can link two TI-86's and select the data types to be transmitted, including programs. You can also back up the entire memory of a TI-86 onto another TI-86.

To cancel this receive mode, press ON . If you get a LINK TRANSMISSION ERROR message, hit EXIT to get back to the LINK menu. If all items are transmitted successfully, you get the Done message. If a file comes through with the same name as one on your calculator, you will get a DUPLICATE NAME error message. Then you must select an option from the menu. RENAM prompts you for a new name, which you type in followed by ENTER . OVERW replaces what is presently on the calculator with the new file. SKIP jumps to the next file. EXIT cancels the rest of the transmission. Sending files. To transmit files to another calculator, hit 2 nd LINK SEND . You will primarily transmit programs (hit PRGM ) and lists (hit MORE LIST ).
