Tuesday, October 09, 2012 4:43 PMIs there a way to force MDT to save a directory in the C:\ when upgrading from XP to 7 using refresh deployment?

yes, via a custom XMl file.
<rules context="User"> (or system instead of user, depends and who's context)
<pattern type="File">C:\MININT [*]</pattern>

To be clear, what Shrek posted above is a configuration file for USMT which is the default method MDT uses to preserve settings, configuration, and other data in an OS refresh. There is no other built-in method other than USMT -- that's it's whole purpose in life and as part of MDT.
Technically, you could manually copy the folder somewhere and then restore it, but that would all be custom work.
