I have an old computer running XP. I have new computer running Windows7. I want to use Easy Transfer to move files from the old computer to the new. I have the Tornado USB cable for Easy Transfer.
I have one account on each computer. On my old machine this is called "Administrator" and it has administrator privliges. In order to move files smoothly with easy transfer I understand that the accounts it moves the files from/to must be named the same. On my new computer, it won't let me create or rename an account to Administrator because it says one already exists. However this "already exists" account doesn't show up in the list of users on the new machine. I'm afraid that if I use Easy Transfer as is, it will move my old files into the hidden "adminstrator" account on my new machine and I won't be able to use them.
I don't care what the name of the account is on my new machine, I just want to get it up to the level of functionality of my old machine as painlessly as possible. I have considered renaming my OLD machine account away from "Administrator" but am concerned that this might cause other problems.
