Hi hope someone can help me with what might be a daft question. I have 2 pc's one with a sata 750 gb hard drive with vista installed - the other is ide 250gb with windows 7 installed. Basically I want to swap the hard drives over and put everything on the IDE 250 gb onto the SATA 750 gb and vice versa without losing any files/docs.
Is it as simple as putting the hard drives into one computer and copying over the files or is there more to it than that. I have alot of saved files etc that I dont want to lose.
If you only have two harddrives this will be impossible I believe.
You could buy a third drive and then copy all your personal stuff from both drives onto it. Install windows 7 on the 750Gb drive and Vista on the 250Gb drive, making sure you get all updates and have the drivers for your motherboard, graphics card etc. Use this to make installing a lot of popular software very easy, click here You can then copy your personal stuff back to where you want it. You then have a handy spare harddrive for backup.
This process will take a while but perhaps someone else can think of another simpler way to do what you want.
