  1. How can I access my hdd after installing windows 10 on my ssd


    I recently bought an ssd and have been trying to move my windows 10 onto it from a hdd. I installed a new copy of windows 10 onto my sdd. This windows let me log in as me through my email, but had me set a new password and is brand new settings wise. Now that windows is running on my ssd, I cant access my data on my hdd. Specifiaclly I cant access my user folder of my hdd on my sdd. How do i fix this?

  2. Install of Win 10 from old HDD to new SSD

    My PC has a WD 1 T HDD as the primary drive with Win 10 installed. There is also an 2nd older WD HDD for data storage purposes if ever needed - unlikely.

    I recently bought a new 500 GB SSD drive. I would like to install my WIN 10 on the new SSD using it as the primary drive.

    To install on the new SSD, would I unplug the WD 1 T HDD and install the new SSD drive on the MB and then install Win 10 on the SSD.

    After the above, I assume I then reconnect The WD 1 T HDD. With the OS on the New SSD, will the apps and programs that are on the WD HDD operate or will I have to reinstall them on the new SSD As well how do I delete Win 10 from the HDD - do I simply delete the files or delete the partitions or just don’t bother. The WD HDD a was not even close to being full and was bought for faster access.

    Any suggestions on how to get the new SSD to work properly and windows off the old WD HDD so it does not interfere with the new SSD would be appreciated.

    Installing Windows 10 on HDD, then on SSD

    Skip the HDD step. Go directly to SSD. Win 10 will install and activate on the SSD with no problems.

  4. How can I access my hdd after installing windows 10 on my ssd

    Automatic repair while booting from hdd and installing windows on ssd.

    1. Migrated windows from hdd to ssd
    2. Formatted hdd
    3. Prioritised boot from ssd in bios
    4. Turned on the pc
    5. Automatic repair

    To deal with this I select boot from a device > then EFI USB device > it says no bootable USB detected, select from these drives > there are few options including the newly installed ssd > I select ssd > then it shows disk checking, press any key to stop > I stop it > windows then boots from ssd.

    It very difficult to repeat all this everytime I turn on my pc. Please suggest a fix.
