I have just bought a new Lenovo laptop.
I wish to move all my data short of the OS from the old Lenovo T60 to the new one.
Any suggestions as to a good program to accomplish this and any tips you may have?

I also have to physically move the data from one to the other, not upgrade from XP to 7.

The utility supports Windows XP and up.

Also if its just data and not settings then you can always just use a USB stick or USB Hard drive to copy and paste the files between the two computers.

Programs are best re-installed, Windows Easy Transfer can do data and settings only. Programs that worked with XP may not even work or work properly with Windows 7, especially if its the 64-bit version of Windows 7.
