Windows 7 Easy Transfer

Windows 7 Easy Transfer.
I saved some settings from my xp computer using 'easy transfer'. The files came from a folder on user 'Bob'. But on my windows 7 computer, I don't expect to have a user named 'Bob'. Will I have any problems transferring over those files?
And where will they put them?

No I have used Easy Transfer and it is great. A few people have mentioned that they lost data. I suggest another back up just in case.

You transfer to an external HD etc. Then when you have the new OS, you trasfer that.
