I'm moving from Win Xp to Win 7.
There are 4500 cookie files in my C:\Documents and settings*UserName*\Cookies directory on XP, dating from 2 days ago back to 2010 (when I last cleaned out older ones).
There is an accompanying index.dat file of 3MB.
I have consistently been using FireFox for the last couple of years, so given the dates I assume they are cookies used by Firefox.
There are a few dozen cookie files in c:\Users*UserName\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Cookies and its subfolder Low on Win 7, all from the last few days.
There are accompanying container.dat files of 0 bytes in both directories.
I use Firefox and did a profile transfer (all settings) with MozBackup. Mozbackup cannot transfer cookies.
I still have access through dual boot to my XP installation. FireFox is set to synchronize, but that does not have a 'cookies' option.
Can I copy the cookie files from the XP dir to the Win7 dir (which of the two?) and will they take effect there?
I may not copy all of them ;-)
