I have a smallish 250gb solid state primary HD, and a 2tb secondary, where I have all of my game engines and other programs installed (as much as I can avoid on the C drive, at least). My problem, is that the engines eat up huge space on the primary drive, leading to a space shortage. I feel I am in need of an upgrade, but I cannot afford the time necessary to try to reinstall everything onto a new HD. Is it possible to migrate the entire contents (including OS) into a new HD, without need for reinstalling anything? If so... how would you guys recommend doing it the most efficiently, so that I don't need to have my pc unusable for any unreasonable period?

Yes. Easily. Just Clone it with Acronis (best, in my opinion) or

 

free cloning software

Macrium Reflect

 

If you are cloning an SSD to another SSD, the process will be done in less than 20 minutes.

I'll keep that in mind. I still need to invest in a new larger HD... I just couldn't see doing the investment if my plot wouldn't be plausible. Thank you very much.
