Q: Undoing Windows Easy File Transfer

Somebody asked about reversing Windows easy file transfer and the answer was simply to delete the files that were transferred.  My question is - When the transfer was made did any of the files make changes to the system.  How about using Restore instead?

Answer

A:

Hi,

If you are transferring your files and settings, then Windows Easy Transfer will make changes to the computer’s settings as well. Instead of just
deleting the transferred files, you can do a system restore. Deleting files is not a good idea because the transferred files may contain some system
files and deleting those files may put the computer in an unbootable state.
