  1. Cloning hdd ?


    Hello I just bought a 3tb hdd and I want to move/ copy all my games from one hdd to another. So the question is is it possible to transfer just games to new hdd without re-downloading all the games. Also I plan on wiping old hdd clean for to use as another storage device on pc. I have the os on another ssd so I dont mind losing everything on there minus pictures and games.

    Also I may have duplicate files on old hdd is there any free trustworthy software that can check and delete as needed ?

    I have a tb of games installed so please I really dont want to have to download everything again.

    Edit: also I downloaded escape from tarkov which took me hours because of constant client errors. Please any help will be greatly appreciated.

  2. cloning a HDD

    Thanks for a prompt reply. Yes, at the POST, i changed the boot order to point to the HDD that is attached via sata/usb cable. the computer still says there is no internal hard drive installed, and will not boot from the usb port that the cloned drive
    is plugged into, nor from a windows 10 repair DVD. The cloned drive shows a full OS and files identical to the internal HDD that it was cloned from.

    Failing HDD and Cloning

    You seem intend on this install clean install windows when I have said windows does not run on that drive and TeraCopy doesn't even budge anymore.
    for moving files from that drive. Then there are those that have suggested imaging and 1 or 2 that talked about cloning software.

    I now have 3 HDDs left...

    So nothing is copying, no cloning and imaging, now what?

    cloned or will it be deactivated?? And what happend to other activated softwares like MS Office and Antivirus Softwares???

    Thank you for your support.
