I'm not technical when it comes to this stuff, due to inexperience, so please be nooob friendly
I bought a computer, and the hard drive was smaller than I wanted. So I went and bought a larger one.
The new hard drive is working fine but its not my main disk drive.
What I want to do is copy all my data from my old drive and the whole os and system, everything. I don't have my original windows 7 activation key as windows 7 came with the PC. Just mentioning it incase it's needed. They are both internal drives btw.
What method do I go about in doing this?
A few questions for after I've copied everything.
How do I make my F drive into my C drive? Like rename it, I know it doesn't matter but I want to.
How do I make my new F drive the default hard drive?
And lastly how do I empty my original C drive, which I'm guessing is reformatting. How exactly do I reformat the hard drive anyway?
I've heard about cloning and tried it, but that just left me with a bootable backup. Did i do something wrong?
I've also heard about changing jump cables or something like that. And changing the master/slave. I really don't know which method as to how to do this so I really need help.
And please be noobfriendly with me, thanks
