Can you move from XP 32 Bit to Win 7 64 Bit without loosing your user data?

By enrodgers ·
Can you move from XP 32 Bit to Win 7 64 Bit without loosing your user data? I have read several places that suggest that using a User Transfer Tool to capture your 32 Bit user data and then restore it to your new 64 Bit System. Is there anyone who can lay this out?

Not really

as you can not do an 'upgrade' installation of 7 on top of XP, you will have to copy your data off the computer install 7,then copy data back, as well as reinstall all your apps.

Then copy over your existing 32-bit data.

Any other form of installation will result in data loss.

I've used PCmover Pro successfully twice to move programs and files between two computers but, as you can see, there are more features than I needed. <br>
If you have any questions before you buy I found their chat to be very helpful.
