hey, i just updated from Windows XP Home edition 32 bit to Windows 7 Professional 32 bit.
during the process, a windows.old folder is created, which contains all files, programs and data from XP
I talked to Microsoft today, and they said that anything in the Windows.old file except the Documents and Settings folder wont work on/effect Windows 7. is this true? does this mean I can just delete the Program files and Windows sub-folders along with any other file in the Windows.old folder? And they said even Program Files uploaded through Windows Easy Transfer wont work, is this true as well?
I ask because before I was first imformed, I moved all the Program Files from the Windows.old folder to the Windows folder for Windows 7 (except the Program Folders that would overwrite Program Files that come with Windows 7). How do I tell now which Program Files are from Windows 7 and which are from XP, because if the XP Program Files wont work I might as well delete them off the computer.
