Easy Transfer - XP to Windows 7 vista cable?

  Pitcher 19:37 27 Oct 2009

I have a new windows 7 pc coming this week and want to use easy transfer to transfer the data from my xp pc. I have borrowed an 'Easy Transfer for Windows Vista' cable but I don't know if that will work with xp?

It will work with XP (confirmation click here), but it can take very long (dependent on amount of data) & will make things worse if it decides to 'hang' mid-way through (as I found once to my dismay!).

Now I only ever do a fresh install & step-by-step manual transfer - at least one can be sure it will be accurate the first time around, & gives one the chance to get rid of all the accumulated junk that was part of the previous OS. G
