Windows Easy Transfer

When you're switching to a new PC, Windows Easy Transfer helps you transfer your files, email, pictures, and settings. In Windows 7, it lives up to the "easy" in its name.

You told us previous versions of Windows Easy Transfer were hard to figure out or stalled before the job was done. So we redesigned it to be more reliable and more helpful. It now includes a file explorer so you can easily choose exactly which files to copy to your new PC. And if Windows finds a file or setting it can't work with, your transfer won't hang up—it will finish and give you a full report of anything that didn't migrate.

If your old PC isn't running Windows 7, you'll need to install the appropriate version of Windows Easy Transfer. Is my old PC running 32‑bit or 64‑bit Windows?
