Specs: Windows XP
I have Windows XP and am getting a new computer with Windows 7. I have a Western Digital Portable Hard Drive that I purchased in 2011, is this going to work with Win 7 so I can transfer files from XP to it? Thank you!

✔ Best Answer
Presumably it's a USB connection for the portable drive. Should work fine.

It should work fine for manual transfers. If it has some sort of automatic backup software incorporated it might or might not work on Win 7 (depends what it is).

Download the drivers to the old or new computer as you did not specify.

It shouldn't need any drivers. Just plug it in and you should see it as a drive in "Computer" on Windows 7.
