Windows 7: Transfer Saved Game Data from XP

Transfer Saved Game Data from XP

I'm going to keep my saved game profile data on an external HDD, reformat my internal HDD, and install Windows 7 64-bit (previously Windows XP SP3 32-bit).
After I reinstall my game (Mass Effect to be specific), will I be able to use the profile data I kept?
I know that 7's game installation process and directories are different...

I'd guess so, I didn't have mass effect when I had XP. With 7 the save directory is "C:\Users\Bill\Documents\BioWare\Mass Effect\Save\". Is it the equivalent on XP? "C:\Documents and Settings\user name\my documents\bioware\mass effect\save\" I believe.

Yep, that's the directory. Thanks.
But is that really all I need to do? I have suspicions that it's not that simple. Then again, I'm a bit of a novice when it comes to anything software related.

I backed up a few of my saves from other games when I did a fresh 7 install and it worked fine. I would guess Mass Effect will too. Finding the right directory to put the saves was the tricky part( I never used vista, strait from XP to 7 ).
