I just bought a larger HDD to replace my secondary HDD (SSD is primary). I do install programs and some games to this secondary drive. I want to use the new drive as my secondary operational drive and take the old one and use for data storage purposes only. I want to not have to reinstall all those programs, nor get dirty with registry paths and what not (mostly because I have not before)
My question is, is it better to:
Clone the old drive to the new one (new drive is 500 GB larger than old), then format the old drive?
Should I just copy the data over, reassign the old drive another letter and name, and assign the new drive the old letter? Obviously I would then format the old drive anyhow.
Thank you for the answers. Much appreciated.
