Windows Easy Transfer

After getting a new computer with Windows 7 pre-installed, one of the first questions you would  ask yourself is: “And now, how do I transfer my files from my old Windows XP to Windows 7”. Microsoft, well aware of this issue, has recently released an interesting tool doing this dirty job for you!

Windows Easy Transfer is a free Microsoft utility which lets you transfer your files such as documents, images, music, emails, settings etc. from a computer running Windows XP to Windows 7. You can transfer whatever you want from any external drive you wish such as USB flash drive or external hard disk. The way it works is really simple. Just run the software from both computers, and that’s it! You will be able to transfer whatever you want in a few seconds! Keep in mind that  this tool is already  built-in in your Windows 7!

    I used this to transfer files and settings from my son’s restricted access account on our family computer running XP to his administrator account on a new laptop for college. The program worked fine but after restoring the files to the new computer his admin account did not have access to the files. I ended up deleting everything that had been copied over then simply copying and pasting from the old to the new computer.

    I used it on my install. I haven’t had a lot of luck with back-up programs in the past, but this went smoothly. Lost nothing, made a small file, and restored in no time. Highly recommend. All setting were carried over for programs on other drives.
