Windows Easy Transfer--the utility for moving files, user accounts, and application settings from existing PCs running Windows XP and Windows Vista to a new PC--has been improved for Windows 7. The key changes are around the user interface enhancements and the new Windows Easy Transfer Reports, which provide details of everything which was moved during the migration. For more on the changes see the coverage by Brandon LeBlanc in the Windows Experience Blog.
For the Windows 7 RC, Windows Easy Transfer can also be used to move files from a Windows 7 Beta PC to a PC running the Windows 7 RC.
IT professionals migrating multiple PCs should also evaluate the User State Migration Tool for Windows 7.
