You can not just copy the files using Windoze, you need a special program like I mentioned above or other programs, such as ghost.

you can use disk wizard to copy the existing data. Just follow the instruction for what you want to do. I would copy the data to the new disk, don't wipe out the old disk, and keep the old disk out of the system for a bit until you are sure that everything works.
This all assume that you have a Seagate disk with DiskWizard.

I tend to use the old disk in a USB case for backups and use the newer, faster disk for the system, although sometimes I use the newer larger disk for backups.

"As the Boot drive keeping the old drive in the system"
I am not sure if it wipes out the old disk, but I would not wipe it out. My personal suggestion is to follow "As the Boot drive removing the old drive from the system", then after a month or so add the old disk to the system and wipe out the data, but that is because I am paranoid and don't trust new equipment until it has run for a bit (infant mortality).
