I have a 160 GB HD with the OS and data files on one partition. I am wanting to buy a 500 GB HD, put my OS on one partition and my data files on another. I would use the 500 GB for my main drive and use the 160 GB for my backups. == Here is what I have in mind to get the right files in the right place. ==
A) Make a second partition on the 160 and put my data files in one and the OS in the other.
B) I can then make two partitions on the 500 and clone the files to it.
C) Then I format the 160 with two partitions and use that for my backup drive.
Does this sound like the right way to go about this? Thanks,
