Windows Easy Transfer
I'm getting ready to replace my son's hard drive (Dell computer) plus upgrade his OS from XP Pro to Windows 7 Home Premium. I've downloaded the XP version of Windows Easy Transfer and ran it backing up the files to an external drive but I'm wondering if something went wrong.
Looking at the backed up file (on the external drive) it doesn't look like what I've seen in tutorials which shows an icon named Windows Easy Transfer - Items from old computer.
The file I get is a file that doesn't know what program created it although the size seems right. I've ran Windows Easy Transfer twice with the same results.
Does this seem normal why wouldn't my file look like a normal file (knowing which program created it) with the icon and name as above?
