Replacing failing HD with an SSD, question.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So my 2tb caviar black is on its way out, I have backed up everything important. I'm replacing it with a 500gb ssd for now until I build a new computer. Is there anyway that I can continue to use the drive as storage without reformatting and taking windows off of it? I'd like to still use it for the music and movies that are saved on it, ateast until it dies.

Thanks!

yea you can just install windows on your new SSD and have the OLD HDD as a 2nd drive.
