Copying all the files from a smaller harddisk to another bigger one...
Posted on 2004-08-03
I have a small harddisk, just 40gb which is filling up pretty fast with data and program and movies etc I have decided to once and for all buy a large hdd and have decided on a 200gigs one.
Problem: I have all my files programs settings etc just the way I like it...after 2 years of using this computer and would hate to start all over again...is there any way to just "move" all these files to the new hdd or do I have to reinstall the os and all my programs (some of which I dont even know where the serials are) to the new hdd?
I am a software guy (html-php) and this sounds more like a mix of hardware and software that I am not used to... :-( so you can talk to me in "computer talk" and I am not lazy...URLs as well as comments are welcome.
Sorry I cant offer too many points but am new to ee and have not built up my points too much and the points that I have earned have not shown up here for me to offer them to you, am offering all the points i have, thanks in advance.
