depends on the files. if its just music and stuff then nothing is needed just drag and drop, but if its windows components, all you have to do is tell windows you "own/are" the user of the other system. (a box pops up instruction you what to do)

How did you do the transfer from your XP machine to the external drive? Did you use a program like MS Easy Transfer? If, for instance, you used Easy Transfer on your XP machine, you need to run Easy Transfer on your Win 7 machine to bring those files into Win 7.

If transfering from Win XP, download the update WET from here:
Download Details - Microsoft Download Center - Windows Easy Transfer for transferring from Windows XP (32 bit) to Windows 7

Windows Easy Transfer - Transfer To & From Computers

Warning do not use the old Win XP Easy Transfer, will not work with Vista or Windowds 7.
