Okay so I have made some progress and have tried the freezer trick. My last option for the old 80GB hdd is to send to local technician, which I may do, when I feel motivated.
Now, I had a 160GB that just got from a friend. I used it to recover files from my 300GB hdd that had to be destructively recovered. There is 20GB worth of stuff sitting in my 160GB SATA hard drive. What is the best way to transfer the 20GB of files from my 160GB SATA hdd to my 300GB SATA hdd?
I have never done partitioning before, manually. ANybody know of a guide that will teach me how to partition my 300GB SATA hdd so that all the windows files are on one partition and all my school and medial files are on the other partition. I assume I could do something like 20GB for the windows partition and the rest for my personal files?
I have this tool to use to make it easier for me. Although, I may not even need it. Right now, I can connect two SATA hdd's in my PC at one time. http://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/PID-...63%28ME%29.aspx
