Switching Hard drivess <help please>
    #2853429 - 07/03/04 08:07 AM (12 years, 5 months ago)

ok, I have a 60 gb hd in my pc now, and I just got an 160 gb hd. I would like to move everything, including the os to the 160 hd and remove the 60 hd. So do I install the 160, use the restore disk on the 160 then move the files over. And then remove the 60, and set the 160 to master?

Any help would help.
Thanks for your time.

DriveCopy.

I guess I would install the new one as slave, copy all files to it, then switch it to master. I dunno what the restore disk or DriveCopy are, but if you do and they help you, great.

Personally, depending on how long you have had your 60gig, it's probably sloppy. I would set the 160 gig to master, reinstall the OS, set the 60 gig to slave, and copy over the files you need.

you could just get an external case and use the 160 as a removable drive.

I got the new hard drive in.
The hd came with a program to switch the hard drives.
Max blast 3, I think it was called.
Thanks for all your help.

Very true :thumbup:

I suppose you could Install the 160gb as the master, and put a clean copy of your OS on it, and then transfer any files you need from the old drive (which you should set as the slave).
