I have a data drive, a Samsung 850 Pro 512 SSD, that is configured as the location of all Users folders and files (AppData, Documents, Music, Pictures, Videos, etc. - everything that is, by default, normally stored in the Windows sub-folder called Users). I had previously relocated this system folder to this data drive, while keeping the operating system (8.1) and program files on another Samsung 850 Pro SSD).
Copying all the data to the new, larger (1TB) drive is not a problem. But I want, when I'm all done, the new drive to become the same drive letter and same system drive designation that the current drive is (on E:). I'm not sure that is as simple as just unplugging the old drive and plugging the new one into the same cable. I mean, it would be great if that's all there is to it, but you know Windows. ;)
I should have realized the 512GB drive was going to fill up fast when I got into this photography habit (RAW files can easily be 50MB each and I like to go out shooting often). Musta parked on a dead brain cell.
Anyway, my computer specs are in my profile, if you need them. I'm hoping one of you smart ones will tell me it's an easy, painless swap.
