    Without taking an operational System apart, can I externally attach a Drive that I suspicion has an Windows-7 Operating System on it and look at certain Files that would indicate which Operating System was installed, 32Bit or 64Bit?

    If you see C:\program files (x86) then it's 64-bit, if there is no (x86) then it is 32-bit.
    Or if you look in C:\windows & there is a SysWOW64 folder then it is 64-bit, if not then 32-bit.
