    Merging multiple old hard drives onto one new disk


    This is a really hard question to google because all the answers keep pointing to the New Striped Volume solution which isn't what I'm after.

    I have multiple old hard drives from old PCs that have the old OS and files on them. Some 250GB, 1TB, 2TB etc.
    I bought a new 8TB and want to clone and move all the data from the old SSD+HDDs onto the new 8TB Disk, and have them appear as separate partitions (eg. 250gb E:\ , 1TB F:\ , 2TB G:\ )

    Is this possible?

    I am using Windows 10

    :)

    Old Hard drive to new hard drive

    I now have my old hard drive converted to an external drive and am wondering what is the best way to move files from the old to the new. I was thinking of booting the old drive and saving the files I want to the cloud and then downloading them to my new
    computer. Does anyone have any other suggestions?

    new system old hard drive...

    I have an old hard drive that has those old ribbon connections to transfer data to the mother board.

    I have a new computer that mostly uses those cool little ATA (I think that is what they are called) connections.

    The new computer has a Vista OS.

    I opened up the case and I was supprised to see on the motherboard a wide ribbon connection and so I connected the old hard drive and a free power connection.

    When I turned on the computer, the system started up like usual and did not notice the new hard drive.

    I went to the Control Pannel and did an automatic add hard drive call and it did not find the old hard drive.

    Any suggestions?
