Windows 7: Getting files off 7 RC drive onto XP/Vista drives

Getting files off 7 RC drive onto XP/Vista drives

I'm running an IBM laptop with Windows 7 RC on HD1, I have a HD2 in a caddy with XP Pro installed. If I swap hd's so XP will be in the laptop, will I be able to put the RC hd into the caddy and get to my user files to copy them into XP, or should I leave 7 RC in place, and copy them onto the XP drive in the caddy (folder permissions problems envisioned)?

Whatever you feel like doing, go for. Permissions are not a big issue. If you run into any problems, we can deal with them then.

Depending on how much you want to copy, you may want to boot from XP, so that the RC is not shutting down every 2 hours.
