Windows 7: Will this LaCie external drive be OK with Windows 7?

Will this LaCie external drive be OK with Windows 7?

I'm currently using a 160GB LaCie external hard drive (described as 'P3' model on the invoice) with my present desktop computer running Windows NT. I bought it in 2005 and it's connected via USB.

I'm about to replace this computer with a new Windows 7 laptop, and I just want to reassure myself that Windows 7 should recognise the LaCie drive without needing any particular drivers to be installed. (I didn't need to install any drivers on my present computer.)

Any advice gratefully received. I always get nervous when buying a new computer, trying to think of anything that could be a problem!

It should work, if not externals are pretty cheap nowadays, that 160GB is gonna be a flash drive soon.:)
