Export the data on the old machine, move/copy the file to some portable
media (or email depending on how large it is) then import it into the
new system using Windows Mail import utility.
Or use the file and settings transfer wizard, But that can be a PITA.
The most reliable time to upgrade to a new Operating System is at the
end of its life cycle.
