Windows 7: Vista 32 to 7-64 Clean Install Save Files


02 Oct 2011   #1

Windows 7 64 bit Professional
 
 
Vista 32 to 7-64 Clean Install Save Files

what I have:
Vista 32 bit system - 2 hard drives

what I want:
Win 7 64 bit system - 2 hard drives

what I want to do:
a clean install of Win 7 64 bit on the primary hard drive

the second hard drive is free to be used as a backup location during the clean install process

question:
how do I backup all critical data to the secondary hard drive before doing a clean install on the primary drive? and then how do I reinstall the data from the secondary drive back to the primary hard drive with the new Win 7 64 bit system on it?

If the 32 bit "data" is just that, it is easy to import after you have re-installed the apps under 64 bit.

If it is something more try the windows easy transfer wizard.
