Hdd Questions... transferring files from one to another
ok well for my new computer Im sticking with an older hdd until i get the $$$ for a new one, a computer I have access too ( the parts and stuff) has a 40 gb hdd but the person only uses a total of like 2 gb of their 40 gb... so im going to trade them a 10 gb for the 40.... so, I want to take their 40 gb hdd and give them my 10 to use, how would I go about transferring all of the files and such?
from what I know I would do this
put in 10 gb as slave, reformat it ,transfer all files from the 40 gb ( all 2 gb of them) to the 10 gb harddrive.... then turn the comp off, take out the 40 gb, set the 10 gb hdd as master, and turn it back on and it would work..... right :-d ?
if not then please tell me how to go about doing this!
thanks! i wish I coudl repay you guys for all of the help!
