I still don't like the way Windows treats files these days... even in Win7.
I make my own directory for Data... it's called Data and sits off the root of C: I cannot abide these long file names... I get to type enough!
So I just grab that folder, and what's below it... copy it over or restore from a backup, then start installing programs.
I got burned pretty bad by XP's little "Transfer Wizard"... so my way is soooo much easier than having to reinstall a horked up system that I JUST finished installing...
But, I am set in my ways on this... just like some won't touch an operating system till SP1 comes out! Some superstitions are rooted in deep stuff that won't go away...
Let me know how it treats you, I am interested to know, but I will watch someone else get frustrated first... :LOL:
You check Technet or MS Community for any issues or errors???
