Putting everything on a new HDD

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have Windows 7 on my SSD with all my important family photos and school docs. I have a 1 TB HDD for games and stuff like that. It only has 300 GB left and I plan on buying a bunch of games on Steam for it in the near future.

So considering I have my OS on an SSD, what exactly do I do to put my HDD stuff on a new HDD?

Steam is really good about creating Steam libraries on, and even moving games onto new drives. It is a very mature software; simply click on the new drive in Steam, when installing a new game, and tell it to make a new Steam library. Otherwise, just drag the files over.

Thanks for the tip. But now that I think of it, I have a lot of other programs on there too that take up a bunch of space. I am thinking of getting that Norton Ghost thing because some people said I couyld clone my drive and put it on a new one with it.
