Windows 7: EasyTranfer settings for complete account transfer?

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1 Ver. 6.1.7601 (Build 7601)
EasyTranfer settings for complete account transfer?

I have made a clean installation of Windows 7 Ultimate on a new hard drive on the same computer as the current Windows 7 Ultimate installation.

Now I want to transfer my account with all files and settings, including all saved passwords, wireless accounts & keys, BitLocker keys, all modifications to the system settings plain everything. I tried it once with the standard selection where not everything on the user profile is selected for transfer. But that did not give me exactly the result I had in mind.

So is it advisable to select everything in the user profile or may that cause inconsistencies or problems?

You could try using :-
Windows Easy Transfer - Windows 7 features - Microsoft Windows

to save all your settings etc. but you willl still need to reinstall some programs.
