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?

Thanks.

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.

^Exactly.
We all learn each day about something or two. For example, me, I just learnt this because of you. :)
