To make a long story short: I mirrored my hard drives a while ago and now it's about time to upgrade, but frankly I only had just enough knowledge to mirror the hds (they were striped before). I want to know if I can just go to the store and buy two identical hard drives (same make, same model, basically two boxes off the same shelf ) and just swap them in in place of my older ones without having to fiddle with configuration or settings or what-have-you?
Regardless, what is the most practical (and simplest) way to get my data (including windows settings, etc, I'd rather not have to reinstall) from the old drives onto the new ones?
Oh, and although I don't plan to, could I do all of the above given that my old HDs are normal HDs, and the new ones would be either SSDs* or hybrid drives?
*I don't think there is much reason to do that though, is there?
