So, my sole internal drive is developing bad sectors. I ran SeaTools for DOS and even though it did "repair" some sectors, my understanding is, I should probably go ahead and replace it.
Here's my question: I have open Sata slots, so what's to stop me from sticking in a new drive,doing a clean windows install on the new drive, and setting it as boot drive? Leaving the old drive in for the moment and transferring my files to the new drive. Of course, I'd still have to reinstall programs on the new drive.
Just seems to be as good a solution as backing everything on an external and then transferring the files to the new drive.
Am I forgetting something? Can I have the same windows license installed on two drives?
