So I was able to get Windows 7 as a student. I have a desktop with XP that I want to wipe so that I can start out again without all of the commercial clutter that came with my computer originally. However, I have several years of documents, music, and pictures that I would like saved as well as software and the settings from my browsers. How do I ensure that I can get my all of old data on the new machine?
And if you think this is a terrible idea and think there is another approach feel free to share.
