Will this work, if so how do I do it?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I finally got all the parts to put my sig rig together (was waiting on mobo for obvious reasons) but I haven't gotten my F3 1tb or F4 2tb yet. My question is, can I still follow the guide in the HDD forums for setting up an ssd with a secondary disk, then when I get my new HDD's, copy my Program Files, Program Files(X86), and Users folders from the old small hdd to the new F3 1tb without having to reinstall everything? After copying, can I just remove the old HDD and plug the F3 into the sata port the old hdd was on and call it good? Do I have to change the drive letter after I do this? If so, how.

Thanks in advance.

Just clone it with Acronis or another program. Everything (including drive letter) should stay the same.

It's not on one drive though. My users folder, program files, and program files (x86) are all on a seperate hard drive from the ssd.

Those files are on the small HDD that you want to move to the large HDD right?

No. my ssd has part of the os on it but my users folder and program files all install to a hard disk by default.
