Ive had an extensive search since installing a new ssd over easter but cant find the answer I want.
quick breakdown. Ive installed windows 7 onto my ssd (primary drive) and updated and installed all drivers
. so its now a blank canvas. ive got a 500gb wd hd which has all my programs, data, pictures etc on it, including the old o/s.
files and folders I can easily backup and move across as i please but ideally id like to keep the ssd relatively clutter free. (for games, data hungry apps)
do i need to back that old drive up, reformat it and start again, installing the same programs to it minus the o/s?
or does anyone know if i can run those original programs from a slave drive and if so how can i access them in the new o/s?
in particular things like antivirus programs, itunes (which has a 130gb library) and so on which are already installed on the old drive but at the moment inaccesible as programs except for their folders.
any advice much appreciated
