Windows Easy Tranfer music files?

I am a very basic computer user but I did transfer my Windows Media Library files from my old XP Computer to my new Windows 7 computer via Windows Easy Transfer. However I have been unable to find the files on my new computer. Where do I look for the music I transferred? Thankyou


So where do I go to find that

All the data from the previous OS is in the windows.old folder on the drive where windows is installed.

In other words C:\windows.old

Type explorer.exe into the start search box.

Hit the enter key

Poke the C drive with the mouse.

Navigate through the C drive folders, looking for the Windows.old folder.

Poke it when you see it.

Navigate through Windows.old, looking for whatever you have lost.
