Can I transfer files from an SSD to a new HD with the same letter
Sep 23, 2011, 2:37 PM
I have filled an 80GB SSD, I want to expand my FSX collection but do not want to spend days reinstalling everything if I can avoid doing so.
Can I simply add a 250GB regular HD and assign it thwe same letter as the SSD and transfer (Copy/paste) everything over?
Any other idea's?

Okay, I found out that I can clone the SSD drive, install the new drive, and then just copy the files over.
I could have deleted this thread I guess, but I thought the solution might help someone else down the road.
