Do XP Files work with Vista?

I currently have a Gateway laptop with XP. I am looking to buy a new machine, but all new machines have Vista. If I was to back up all my documents, pictures, etc. on a disk, would I be able to load them all onto Vista?

    Yes your files (such as documents and pictures) would load and open up the same--provided that you have software on your new Vista computer that can read them (such as MS Word for documents... Windows comes with a barebones image viewer so pictures shouldn't be a problem).

    Since you are getting a new machine, the main thing to worry about is the software programs that you like--not all have been updated for Vista. But your files should not be a problem at all.
