Hi guys,


My fiancee is running out of room on her gaming PC's 1 terabyte storage hard drive. I thought that a 3-5 TB HDD would be a nice holiday present for her, I was just wondering if it's a hassle to transfer the data. Every guide I found on the web is pretty much focused on upgrading a drive which contains both OS and storage - but her OS is installed on an SSD, while pretty much everything else is located on the 1 TB HDD. Is it as simple as copy and paste, or is there a wizard or....?

System info:
Windows Home 7 Premium 64 bit

256 GB SSD Boot Drive

1 TB Storage HDD


More info is avail if you need more info to answer this question, I would just need to boot her machine up.


Thanks for reading, and any help, words of advice, links to a guide etc.
