windows 7 32 bit


New member here hoping to get help with my new windows 7 32 bit system.

I have just switched all of my data over from windows XP to a new computer with this operating system only to realize that I will not be able to use the extra (16GB) of memory I just purchased.

Am I stuck with the 2.89 usable unless I load windows 7 64 bit system?

It was really dificult for me to get everything transfered over to my new computer especially all of my outlook stuff (rules, files, etc.)

Would I be able to back everything up, and just transfer it to the new windows 7 64 bit system installation?

Any help is greatly appreciated..

Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit Service Pack 1

How much RAM do you have?32 bit will support no more than 3 Gigs.Installing 64 is a whole new OS,its installing,not upgrading,you will not be able to keep your settings.Back up your data and files contents can be done,sure,but settings...Go 64,its gonna be worth it afterwards.

Windows 7 Pro X64 SP1

To reiterate:

You'll need to install the 64 bit version to access more than 4GB of RAM. (You wouldn't actually be able to fully utilize 4GB under the 32 bit version.)

No upgrade-in-place from any 32 bit OS to X64 is possible. You'd have to do a fresh install. All applications would have to be re-installed.

I'm not sure how much help Easy Transfer would be. It has never been of much use to me. There must be a clean way to copy over your Outlook data, but I haven't done it on a recent version.
