Hello everybody,


I have two hard drive. Both are Transcend. Older drive(1 TB) and new drive(1.5 TB). When I transfer data from the older to the newer, it don't allow me to highlight all of the data to transfer. I have to transfer one folder at a time. Both are formatted NTFS


What to do yo resolve this issue? Any ideas?

I am not sure what you are asking. Evidently you are dragging and dropping with your mouse using Explore, and dragging file folders from the old drive to the new drive. You are trying to use your mouse to hi-light several file folders at the same time. IF that is what you are attempting, Explore will not do that. I have never been able to select multiple folders at the same time. I don't know why, but that has been my experience.

Don't know what this topic is all about but its not a problem in winXP, some system folders though it dousen't like it if you try and move them around and will bug the copy process if their selected, besides that no problems here.

Another option would be to move the entire folder to a flash drive and then install the folder in the new drive.


Example: Say you wish to move all of your pictures which are in the Pictures folder, right click on the folder and select Send to, then select your flash drive.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
