    XP32 > Win7x64 Migrate Settings Data: Chrome+Extn, Outlook+iTunes+App?


    How do I migrate these SETTINGS DATA etc so that on the new OS after Application Installation and APP SETTINGS / DATA migration its exactly as before.


    Especially the following Applications & their Data:


    OUTLOOK + iTUNES + APPS + iPhone SYNC:
    What would be a fool proof way of making this as "error proof as possible"?

    GOOGLE CHROME & EXTENSIONS:
    Google Chrome & the Extensions as they are. Especially, the INFO, DATA, SETTINGS, SESSIONS stored inside several EXTENSIONS.



    OFFICE MIGRATION DATA LOCATIONS after searching the web:



    WHAT AM I MISSING?
    WHAT STEPS CAN I FOLLOW TO PREVENT LOSS OF APPLICATION SETTINGS & APP-SAVED DATA.

    I am wondering about 2 more things now:


    1) DATA for CONTACTS


    Both of the following a "structured data" for the AddressBook/Contacts that sync with each other.


    Outlook 2007 (Contacts) (now in WinXP Pro SP3) and
    iPhone (Contacts) (now on iPhone 4 iOS 4.2.1)


    My question is if I had to choose between one source, which would be the BETTER/ RICHER source of Data for re-population of data on 2 new systems:


    Windows 7 x64
    iPhone iOS 5.x


    If so, how best would I migrate the data to the new systems. I am fine with SSH & iFunbox usage on iPhone. I can learn how to exactly backup and use Contacts also. But, I'd like to know whats best.


    2) Migrating WINDOWS LIVE MAIL as IT IS


    What files, settings, folders/ paths should I copy/ backup & migrate to have Windows Live Mail be as similar as possible.

    Please, answer 1 question before I say anything (more)…

    Is this one computer or 2 we are talking about here? I'm trying to sort out... this isn't an 'upgrade' from XP x86 to Win7 x64, right or is it?

    Cheers,
    Drew
