I have a home built computer. It has an Intel I7-2700K overclocked to 4.6 gh. It has Win. 7 64 bit. OS. I have 3 drives installed. C drive is the 256 gb SSD . I have a Photo Storage drive and a Back Up Drive. I plan to replace the C drive with a Samsung 850 Pro . The 850 Pro came with a migration disk. When I get that done I plan to replace the Photo Storage disk with a larger one. It is a regular hard drive.The questions I have is should I remove the Photo Storage and the Back up drive while migrating the data from the C drive to the 850 Pro?

Less drivers you have attached to computer when using hard drive tools, less chance for unpleasant surprises.

 

Migration disk shouldn't (not to say it doesn't) affect other hard drives. So while you may keep all drives when using migration disk, disconnecting all but needed drives is bit safer choice.

Thank you. Is there a step by step tutorial for this? It is my wife's computer and I already killed it one time.

For migration tool https://www.pugetsystems.com/labs/support-software/Data-Migration-with-Samsung-SSDs-699/

 

As for others, just remove extra drives before using that tool (unplug SATA or power cable is enough) and after using tool put them back.
