Upgrade Win 7 to XP machine

Is there any method to use Windows Easy Transfer between the XP machine to an external drive for backing up my files?

Which way are you going, XP to 7 or downgrading 7 to XP? Can't tell from your description.

If XP to 7: Windows Easy Transfer for Windows XP

Additional Information

  • You can transfer files and settings using a network share, or transfer files and settings using removable media such as CD/DVD, or an external hard drive.

    Windows Easy Transfer does not migrate installed applications.

    Both computers must support the transfer method you choose. For example, if you write the data to CD or DVD, the destination computer must also have a CD or DVD drive. If you choose to transfer the data across the network, both computers must be connected on the same network.

I have heard that you can do the transfer to an external drive using the Easy Transfer. Have you ever heard that?

Why don`t you just copy and paste ? This way you can see exactly what you are backing up and you don`t transfer any unneeded garbage.

Guess a person could do that. I did my transfer from the old pc to a external drive and back to the "new" operating system. This on my "test" machine to see what I might run into if I finally get around to installing Win 7 onto my other pc's.

As I quoted, yes, you can use an external drive.
