hello everyone

is there a way to copy / move file from a hdd to another hdd and have gui like windows explorer
i am looking small software that can be run from usb flash disk and can do file copy/moving

my dell PC died (the psu and mobo just fail)
so i built new pc, as almost all hardware is new, i don't think i can boot to windows correctly

Just put the old drive into the new PC as a "D" drive. It won't screw up "boot master".

When you add the old drive, just make sure that your current boot drive is set as first boot device in bios.
