I'd avoid easy transfer and just do it the old fashion way it's more straight forward.
Plus you can save the files as backups.

You can use easy transfer to transfer data files and settings but you won't be able to move programs with it.

You will need to do a clean install of Win 7 in order to move from 32 to 64 bit and will need to reinstall all of your programs. Data can be backed up via an external drive using a backup program or simply copy and paste. You can use easy transfer to transfer files to another computer via network or easy transfer cable or by using an external drive. Here's a TechNet article explaining how to use easy transfer:
