One of my friends wants to get rid of their old hard drive in their Dell and put it the new one she bought, and have all she had on the old one put on the new one. I told her it would be much more simple to just keep the old one with all the stuff inside and just have the new one alongside it to store data and have more space, but she doesn't want to. So my question is, can I mirror the old one onto the new one? Will it work? Or do I have to re-install Windows, programs and all of that and then transfer documents, pictures, movies, music etc. onto that? In that case, can I use the Recovery Disc given to me by Dell on the new drive to install Windows?
Thanks for reading and (hopefully) answering. BTW I need an answer ASAP so please please answer!
