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?

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.
