Windows 7 Easy transfer
Hi,I have windows 7 home premium 64bit had it for a couple of months,Working well the only thing is when I had it first one wasn't sure how to copy music & documents etc over from my old xp machine.
Now I'm thinking of re sorting things out good and proper,This is my plan
Save all my Documents,Music,My Pictures & Videos all on to an external drive.
Sorry I should have said move not save all my doc's etc.
Now will the windows 7 transfer work to get the documents etc back on to my pc in the correct order?.If possible can someone please put me in the correct order in doing so.As said all my doc's etc will be on an external hdd.They wont be on the 'C' drive.Is it possible to be done with the windows easy transfer,Will it recognize my ext hdd?.
I do hope that it will work,On the link it looks so easy.
Documents > Doc's Folder.My Music > My Music Folder and so on?.

Do exactly what you said. Copy (backup) the files and folders you want to save, reinstall then copy them back. WET is not needed for this. Having said that, you can use WET if you want.
Use WET to copy the files and folders to an external drive then again to restore. Good write up here: Using Windows Easy Transfer to transfer your data to a new computer
