The Microsoft Team blog have a article on improvements to the Windows Easy Transfer wizard which comes with Windows 7. You can use this application to move files and settings from a Windows XP/Vista/Seven operating system to a fresh Windows 7 install. It works surprisingly well, and will be a great way to move from the Windows 7 RC > RTM.

Windows Easy Transfer is an application designed to help people move their important files, user accounts, and application settings from their old PC to a new PC. The new version of Windows Easy Transfer for Windows 7 comes with improvements based on feedback received from Windows Vista customers. I wanted to take a closer look at these improvements.

For the new version of Windows Easy Transfer, people can move their files from PCs running Windows XP and Windows Vista.

NOTE: 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.

The Windows Easy Transfer tool is amazing. This is NOT the same crappy tool that came with XP. It rules.

Yep, this one is miles better :D It's good how you can now choose what you want to import to the new system, which was one of the big drawbacks of the old verison.

It looks like it will be really easy to move from the RC > RTM using this :)
