pooter question......

Here's ra pictur......

Wan pooter whit huz served ye faithfully an' weel fur years is gettin' a wee bit auld and ye want tae replace it wi a bigger yin.

Is there ony simple wye o' liftin' everything aff o' ra auld yin and transferrin' it a' - including akshul programmes as weel as jist files annat - tae ra big, bricht shiney new ane?
Neil

Naw.

If't wiz simple aabdy'd be at it.

It's simple enough tae transfer yer files an settins but the programs is anither maitter. Ye need tae install the programs so's they write things in the registry annat, so ye canna jist copy tham fae ae compuchter tae anither.

Put ra two hard drives iun ra wan puter, keeping ra new hdd as ra master wan, teh aukld wan becomes a secondary ur slave drive

Shoukldnae make yer puter go any slower

If yer puter takes IDE type  HDDs it kin take uptae a maximum of 4 IDE devices
