Hello everyone, first time poster from Wash. DC
I have a Dell Dimension 4550, XP os. My hard drive started to make a piercing, annoying noise. As a result, Dell sent me a replacement hard drive. I now have 2 hard drives loaded. Now, I want to transfer my files from my old hard drive to my new hard drive. What is the best way to do this?
The IDE cable can connect to both hard drives, while connecting to the motherboard. My question: is their a way I can transfer files from my old hard drive to my new hard drive by connecting the two drives?
Or, do I need to burn all my files to a disk to transfer, or get an external hard drive to transfer my files, and then transfer them to the new drive.
