      Depends on the OS you are going to

      But as you have XP on the Old Computer and a unknown OS on the New one not likely to be XP I would backup all the Data as Plain Data to whatever you have Available or use a Crossover Cable to establish a Local Area Network to transfer the Data.

      You can not rely on the File & Setting Transfer Wizard here as different OS do not work very well together with the others Data Files Types.

      Also if you Encrypted your Data you need to Back it up without Encryption because Vista or 7 is unable to read XP Encryption methods.
