I bought a SSD and installed Windows 7 on it without my HDD plugged in. I have the SSD setup for my boot drive and all of that. But now I'm realizing that when I boot with the SSD I'm stuck with the bare bones of Windows 7. Is there any way to view my desktop with all of the icons and folders on my HDD without actually booting up on the HDD? Also is there a way to transfer my drivers from my HDD to my SSD.

Basically I want to be able to have Windows 7 on my SSD along with a couple of games and everything else on the HDD and still view everything like it was before I had the SSD. (desktop settings, background, ect.)

Thanks for the help in advance.

you can copy or move data files from one hard disk to another, but you will want to reinstall any drivers or applications.
