Dose the windows folder contain windows files, or windows its self. Like if i were to copy the windows folder to a separate drive would it install windows to that other drive or just the files, data, etc?

Ok thanks. One more question. The reason i want to do this is to change my primary drive to secondary. If i were to make a clean re-install of windows, and then transfer all the windows files back to my hard drive, would my drives settings (primary/secondary revert to how they were before the clean install.
If you know the answer please post it. I have put this question is a couple other threads and no one replied back. I guess they don't deem it worthy of their time lol. I'm kinda a newb with computers but trying to learn.

if it a ssd your moving too or a new hard drive use a drive clone software.it make a copy of your main drive. if the copy is fine then you can format the old drive.
