Hello, Quick back ground then question.
I help out with a 501c3 not for profit. Very small org. so we save money all we can. Their small HP computer died. Power supply went out. Before I could offer to replace just the PS, they were given a new HP computer. Both are running Win8. very little software is loaded but they did have some accounting info and word docs on the other drive. The old drive is good. its a WD 1tb drive. I had an extra external enclosure sitting here and put the old drive in it. It works fine. However, I can't seem to find the documents on that drive nor can I get the accounting SW to open.
How do I transfer all the datat from the old drive to the new system? With everything in the right place? How about simply replacing the new HD with old one and booting it up from there? Would that work?
