Hi all,
This might be a very simple question, and will only require a yes or no answer, however, it needs to be asked. I currently have a 120gb SSD for my OS, and a 1T HDD, as storage and game/program install directory. As i do a bit of game recording/Video editing/Downloading, i was looking at a Seagate Barracuda 3TB, 7200rpm HDD to replace it. Please dont suggest getting external drives to store these files, as while recording games, writing to an external drive slows things up a fair bit and i need access to most of the files even if i dont have access to those external drives.What i wanted to know was, is it possible to simply make an image of that 1TB HDD, and copy it to the 3TB drive and have all my games/Programs work as if there was no change? I dont see why this would be an issue as long as the drive letter was the same.
Check below for my current set up.
Thanks very much.

Yes, entirely possible. That will work as long as, as you rightly say, the drive letter remains the same.
