Had to install clean Win10..need help with programs
« on: November 12, 2016, 06:45:22 pm »
S!
I had to install clean Win10 and some new hardware.
Can I migrate or somehow bring over from old HD, which is still installed, to new one that has Win10 on it?

Thanks...grrrreat

Not sure if you kept the old hard drive and used it for the OS drive or if it is now an extra drive. If it is now a back-up, you should still be able to access the files on the drive without any problem, but if it is the OS drive, the install of Win10 may have overwritten files depending on how you set up Win10.
Did you use the old drive as the OS drive (C:) or as an extra drive (D:)

Thanks, Gos,

The new drive has the Win10 operating system, and the old drive is an extra.  I wasn't able to access/load Win7 anymore, but I think the old files are available.  I now have 3 drives, actually, but the new one with Win10 is the active one.
