Windows 7: Offline files between XP Pro and Windows 7

02 Nov 2009   #1

Offline files between XP Pro and Windows 7

I currently have 2 XP Pro systems (laptop and desktop). Offline shares are working fine; the laptop has the offline files. I created an s:\ (for share) drive on my local LAN using my desktop system and all the files reside there.

My laptop needs to be upgraded. I want to go to Windows 7. Will I be able to easily transition offline files with this setup from 2 XP Pro systems to a Windows 7 (Professional or Ultimate) on a laptop and my current XP Pro Desktop?

NOTE: The operative word here is "easily".
