You will need to copy files to a USB flash drive or something to that effect. Lots of articles online about this right now as lots of users are wondering the same things. I try to keep all important work on my old xp but I spend most of my time on seven so it is gonna be hard to wipe this install and put another on and then another when seven goes to retail but you gotta do what you gotta do. enjoy the now.

Windows 7 RTM Build 7600 x64 Ultimate

So if I get rid of my XP partition and just run XP in VMWare Workstation, so when they deactivate my Win7 I can still reach the files from my XP VMWare installation to move onto my new XP, right?
