I am going to install windows 7 64 on a brand new solid state drive. I also have a HD that I have been using just for file/media storage. Will I have any problems accessing these once I boot from the new setup? The file/media storage HD does not have an OS on it but it was all created while using Vista 64.

Thanks,

Best solution

No you won't have problems accessing your files.

You could have problems access some of them (or delete them) but its easy to fix by changing security permissions on files with administrator.

This is because of how ownership on NTFS filesystem works.
