Windows Easy Transfer
Posted on 2011-03-16
I want to transfer the user settings / profile from a Windows 7 64 bit O/S on older hardware to a Windows 7 64 bit on new hardware.
I went through the motions with Windows easy transfer, and it seems the migration was successful except for a few items:
Location of the start menu did not restore to position of original (old machine). On the old machine it is on the top of the screen instead of bottom.
Also, on the old machine the quick launch buttons were not migrated either (the ones hjust to the left of the clock on the menu bar).
Does anyone know why these settings on the new machine do not match the old machine?
I ran the wizard from within the users profile on both machines (the only one that exists beside admin account).
