I have 2 150 gig hard drives and my main one© is giving out. I was wondering how to transfer everything i have on it to my f drive, my secondary. I want it to be the primary one which i boot up with and everything, as i am going to take out the c drive and chunk it. i was wandering if there is an easy way to transfer all the files, or if i need to take it to a computer shop or what. Thanks for viewing and please reply!

If you just want to transfer data files, simply right click on them, choose copy. Then navigate to the other hard drive, right click and choose paste. This will copy your files onto the 'good' hard drive.

If you want to transfer EVERYTHING, bit for bit, including windows, all your settings, etc. Then you should look into a program like Norton Ghost to do this job.

Perhaps others here can recommend other programs that will do this job also, perhaps even for free.

Currently home chillin' with the fam and my two dogs!
