Windows Easy Transfer ?. 2nd hard drive

I have read up on how Windows Easy Transfer works and on the page that gives the options for storing the back up file, you have one option for External drive or USB external drive.

No mention is made of being able to use an already installed 2nd internal data drive. Has anyone been able to successfully use an internal drive with WET?

Yes it Should work. Use that option and you can select the drive you want to store to. WET works great have used it many times.

Good Luck

Absolutely. I did just that when moving form the Beta to the RC. Experimented extensively.

Many others have had success as well:
