I've just re-installed Windows 7 64bit and am moving some files onto my "Programs and Data" hard drive. With the previous install I have moved a number of the Win 7 files onto the this HDD, and I want to do the same now. Since that drive now contains my previous copies of the these directories and files, and I want to keep them, how can I merge the contents. Is it as simple as copying what new content I want from the C drive, changing the location of the USER files in Windows to the HDD, then deleting what is on the C drive?
Thanks for any help. If I'm not clear on the objective, let me try to clarify.
As for moving regular files and folders, it is as simple as dragging and dropping the folders to their new home.
If you're trying to move installed programs, not so much, because since you reinstalled Windows 7 it has a fresh registry and there is not any associated registry keys with the prior programs you are trying to migrate over unless you backed up the registry keys and such.
