Hey,
I have a 500 gigi hdd that is starting to fail, and I'd like to transfer all of my os, data and programs onto a 1tb drive that I have laying around... is this possible? Or do I need to reinstall windows?

    The simplest way is to reinstall windows on the new drive + all your programs and then copy all your data across . This takes time but is better

    You can also use ghost or acronis software to copy the contents of your drive to the new drive .

    the demo version works fine
