Windows 7: Asus G73JH possible wrong hard drive swap

Asus G73JH possible wrong hard drive swap

Ok so I recently picked up this laptop from some guy for fairly cheap for some light gaming. But once I got it I noticed that the storage hard drive was only 100 gb and that the os drive is 530 gb. I've owned a few laptops and computers in the past and it has always been the other way around. Is it possible that when he wiped the computer and re-installed windows 7 that he screwed up the drivers? And what can I do to fix this if there is a way to fix it?

Sorry, put this in the wrong section also -_-"

First on the 530 gb disk can create a data partition..then transfer the data from the 100gb disk to this new partition that you created on 530 gb disk.. then.. using maricum image backup software .. make an image of the 530 gb(old) partition.. and restore it on the 100gb you can format the 530 gb (old partition and made it data partition too)

Here's some tools that can help along the way. After you make the data partition on the 530GB HDD you would only need to image the partition with the OS on it.
