I recommend that you simply backup your files the good old-fashioned way by copying them to your backup media. And I'm rather knowledgeable regarding Win 7 Backup & Restore.
And will the themes I've made in Win7x32 work in Win7x64?
Do not know but I would think that they will.
What's the big difference in 32bit and 64bit anyway? Wherever I look online, it just says that 64 is faster and it can utilize full ram.

But the basic OS is the same right?
