I am planning an upgrade from Windows XP to Windows 7 and am currently at the stage where I've finished copying my files on Windows XP. I am sceptical about moving on to the next stage (installing Windows 7) and have some questions to ask:
- Does Windows Easy Transfer act as a back up for your computer?
- Once I have finished installing Windows 7, how can I access the files from the old computer from my external hard drive? How do I open those file from the local disk (C:)? I want to transfer everything from Windows XP to Windows 7 on the same computer safely.
- Can Windows Easy Transfer migrate my programs as well? If not, is there a program that can transfer my Windows XP programs onto my Windows 7 installation?
