help with mass storage moving


Hi! i am going to get a 6Tb Hdd to upgrade my 2 1Tb Hdd but i have heard that if i move everything over it would mess a lot of programs up due to the path being moved and i was wondering if there was any way to make it still work after the move, my windows and user folders will stay on my SSD.


Many Thanks!

Yeah Windows doesn't allow this without reinstalling the applications on those disks.


If you want to go ghetto, create two partitions on the drive, copy all data there from the 1TB disks, then disconnect the 1TB drives and assign the letters that belonged to them to the new partitions on the new drive. This might work if you're lucky. 


Make sure you have back-ups first.
