I am contemplating doing a clean install of Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit on my Vista Home Pemium 32-bit, or possibly having it done. I would wipe and do a clean install, but I hate losing all my installed programs.
Someone suggested Easy Transfer as a way to transfer all my programs after I have installed Windows 7 so as not to have to download and install them all over again.
I Googled Easy TransferI was directed to the location of Windows Easy Transfer on my Vista, which I didn't even know what there.
They talk about transferring from one computer to another. I am dealing with just one computer here, although I do have an external hard drive with 170 GB of free space.
I would wipe my hard drive on this Vista machine and then install Windows 7. So when I wipe the HD the programs will be gone. Can I transfer them to this external HD, and then after installing Windows 7 transfer them back to the computer? Does 170 GB sound like enough room to do that?
