How to upgrade secondary storage drive to one with more space?

I recently bought a 2TB WD Black drive to replace the 500GB Black I have in my current rig, since this is a secondary drive, without system reserved partitions on it or anything, can I merely select all the files in the drive and copy them over? Then just change the new drive's letter and name to match the older one? Or should I use some sort of cloning utility..Thanks in advance.

Yes, the way you've outlined it will almost certainly work.

Copy over, change drive letters, done.
