Can you put files or pictures Back onto an XP machine?

Hello everyone, was wondering if I can put some files or pictures on a thumb drive that are stored on my Win 7 PC and transfer them to my old PC, an XP computer?

Absolutely. Files are files in this situation, so go for it with confidence.

I do this as well having an XP machine at work. I seem to be the hold out for support purposes. The last cookie in the jar. The final eskimo on a block of ice. The last doughnut in the box.
Sorry, been testing out the new coffee at work.
You'll be fine.

Well, the reason I asked was, cause i do have a thumb drive, and when I plug it into my XP computer and open it up, some files do not show up, like its blank or something.

I'm thinking either some of the pics are corrupt. Or, are somehow hidden. Do they show up on another XP machine?
You may need to go into a cmd prompt and cd into it and use attrib to list / show hidden files.
