Re: File and Settings XP vs Vista
NO and Yes.
Better choice, put the Vista DVD in and at the install screen choose the
"Transfer Files" choice and use Vista Windows Easy Transfer. (WET)
If you do have a Windows Files and Setting Transfer Wizard store, Windows
Easy Transfer can read it, but just copy it to a single folder and not
replace everything. WET is better.
