Windows 7: 7 Easy Transfer fails while checking what can be transferred

Windows 10 Pro

I know this is a dead thread, but I still use WET and it's great (when it works). This error, in my experience, is caused by old profiles that no longer have a valid AD account attached to them.

If you go into the Advanced System Settings and click on the User Profiles dialogue and remove any "ACCOUNT UNKNOWN" accounts it should work.

I'm nor sure if it will work, but give it a try.
As in the report says that "The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process." create another user, log in with it and try to save the info from your profile. Don't forget to disable the Antivirus.
