Wasnt sure if this was in the right area but couldn't think of a better place. Basically tomorrow im am going out to purchase a new hdd (samsung f3 500gb) and windows 7. I havent got any way to back up my data, so my first question is can i add the new hardrive to my computer, move all my data across, then format the old drive and install the operating system onto that and is it as simple as it sounds if possible?
Next, what would be the best way to setup my drives. I am an avid gamer and as such was thinking of using the new hdd soley for my games and then having the operating system, documents and other programs on my old hdd (160gb), would this be a good idea? if not what would the best setup be?
