Windows 7: MS word 2010 docs backup and restore

MS word 2010 docs backup and restore

Windows 7 pro 64bit

MS word 2010 installed

I am changing out my HD in the desktop and want to move my word docs to the new HD. I can get them, only a couple dozen, to a thumb drive but I am seeing something on a few of the docs. As they are all listed I see a exclamation ! symbal within the W icon. This ! is in a yellow box. What is this and what does it mean. If I double click on these docs they will open in word and are editable. If they won't backup to a thumb drive I'll have to retype them before backing up. I don't want to do this unneccessarily so I'm asking here what to do
