Hi. I am planning on upgrading from XP to Windows 7. Right now, I have 2 hard drives on my computer (C: and F. All of my files are on the C: hard drive (300GB) and F: (1TB) is empty. When I install Windows 7, I'm planning on installing it to F: , and later copying files over from C: instead of using an external hard drive (which I don't have and don't plan on buying) and the stupid "easy transfer" thing. Would I be able to do that? Will I still be able to access the files on my old hard drive from Windows 7 if they are on an XP partition? I don't see why not, but I've never really tried moving files from one OS to another, maybe someone else who has can let me know if this would work? In simpler terms : Drive C: - XP Drive F: - W7 and I want to move things from C: to F: using Windows 7, or perhaps Ubuntu if using W7 doesn't work. Also, would this work if upgrading from 32-bit XP --> 64-bit W7?
