Currently I have a Toshiba Satellite A215 which wont get out of the Resume Windows loader because I cant use the Enter button or up and down arrows. The Toshiba has a  250 GB Fujitsu 4200RPM (MHX2250BT) HD in it. Which the computer store that I went to told me it was a 215 dollar fix which is what the computer was worth like 6 years ago... Im Currently looking at getting a

Gateway Black 15.6" NE Series NE56R41u. Which comes with a 500GB SATA hard drive.


My Question is what would be the easiest way to transfer my files from the 250 GB HD to the 500 GB HD?

The best bet would be to use one of these.

Above response assumes that you are referring to data files only.


You will not be able to transfer either your installed programs...these items will need to be installed anew.
