We're building a new PC with a brand new (therefore, empty) hard drive--a solid state hard drive. We're considering including my old hard drive (for, obviously, 2 drives) [It's not a solid state drive].
My question ... if my old hard drive is infected, can the virus travel from it to the new hard drive? (I don't know for a fact that the old one is infected...I did various scans and they had nothing to report. I just don't know, though, if there could be something lingering; and if so, if it would enter the new hard drive.
Alright, I look forward to replies. Thank you!
