  1. Windows is generally not very good at hotswapping drives, so I recommend the free program HotSwap:

    You often have to restart Windows to get it to see the new drive, although it should with a simple rescan of the drives, it often doesn't. To unmount the drive just run HotSwap and select the drive, works very well.

    To move the files, simply select them on the source drive and right click drag and drop then choose copy to the destination drive.
  2. that almost sounds to easy thank you, I'll give it a go.
