Swapping old secondary HD from old system to new system Tags: Hard Drives Storage Last response: November 20, 2012 3:31 PM in Storage Share povictory November 20, 2012 12:19:02 AM Hi all, I apologize if this is a dumb question but I haven't been able to find specific information on my situation in any of the searches I've done. I just got a new PC with Windows 8. My old Windows XP system has a 500GB secondary internal hard drive that I would like to move over to my new PC (also as a secondary drive). Are there any potential problems with moving a secondary drive between two OS's? I realize primary drives would be a problem but I'm not sure about secondary. If anybody can assist with the question and/or point to somewhere that could give some guidance on how best to do this, it would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
