___Easy transfer drive mapping__

I am having issuse with an XP-win 7 upgrade.

When I use WET utility it tries to install all my files onto my small C:drive. The original .mig file comes from a computer with C: J: K: drives... the new comp just has C: and D:.

Why isn't it giving me an option to map the drives when I upgrade?

It tries to install on C drive then gives up when it runs out of space.

When I look at the map drive tab in WET it says 'no drives are available for mapping.'

I have tried using the same file on a vista laptop and easy transfer works perfectly - it gives me an option of where to install my files. 

I have tried renaming the D: drive on my win 7 machine to M and J to see if this would force east transfer to give me an option of mapping drives - but it hasn't worked.

Hi xdcthedoc,

Thanks for posting. To get clarification on this issue, you are trying to get easy transfer to auto-map your drives when restoring files on Windows 7? Please let me know if this is correct. Also have you tried mapping the drives yourself to see if the Easy Transfer utility puts the files in the correct spot when restoring? If not please do this and let us know if it works.

Hope this helps!
