I'm looking for a good way to add a new, larger hard drive to a Windows 10 system and have it replace one of the drives that's currently defined.
Currently the computer has one physical drive with two partitions, C: and D:. C: is the boot drive and D: has a variety of files on it including some Program Files.
I'm installing a new hard drive which I want to use as a replacement of the D: drive. Then I plan to expand the C: partition to take up that space currently occupied by the D: partition.
Is it a simple matter of installing the new drive and accessing it temporarily as a new drive letter, coping all the D: files over to it, then deleting the current D: partition? Or will that screw things up?
I currently have some programs installed to D: and have a user's home directory on D: as well.
