Hello guys!


I've got a problem with transferring some files from disk 1 to disk 2.

THe first one is a 500 blue caviar with XP and about 200gb files on one partition, the second one is my current and also the target for the files to be transfered, which is a 1tb spinpoint f3, C, D and E partitions with windows 7, where systemfiles are at C, the steamclient and related games are at D and the rest(and the tranfering target) on E.


I do have sata cables and satapower enough to run them both, but wether it's possible to crosstransfer data(not all data, just about 500mb) between 2 disks both with a OS installed on each.


I've been using different searchengines but havn't found any relative thread with an answer for this very question.


Any input(or output:D ) is highly appreciated!

"I've got a problem with transferring some files from disk 1 to disk 2. "
What error are getting? this could be a permissions problem.
Are both drives installed and you have a dual boot setup with XP? you may need to setup sharing on both OS's.

I do not recieve any messages, I just have this task to finish, and you might be correct, I failed a bit on my grammatics, but this is mainly a question concerning the smartest way to solve this problem :)
