    Transferring boot drive with windows 10 to another laptop


    Hey all,
    I bought a gaming laptop a while ago and got a license of windows 10 education on it, but I want to upgrade my device and was wondering if I could simply deactivate windows, put my boot drive in the new laptop and reuse the license on it instead. It takes quite some time installing windows and all of my other software, and I was wondering if I could save time this way.

    My windows is version number 1903(Build 18362.356)

    :)

    Windows 10 boot drive

    Is Windows 10 also limited to a max of 3Tb for a boot drive?

  3. USB Transfer to Laptop

    Hello Judy,

    I suggest you to copy all the files to a flash drive from the laptop.
    You may create a new folder on your desktop and name that folder as per your choice.


    • Perform the steps to transfer the files from laptop to desktop.

    • Plug in the flash drive and wait for it to get detected.

    • Now, open the flash drive and Right Click on the files that you want to transfer and select “Copy”.

    • Now, open the folder on desktop and Right Click on an empty space in the folder and select “Paste”.

    • Similarly, you can transfer all other files.
    As per the file size you can also use an external drive instead of a flash drive and transfer the data.



    Hope this helps. If the issue remains unresolved, please get back to us and we would be happy to help.

    Transferring boot drive with windows 10 to another laptop

    Cannot transfer files from the laptop to the drives

    Original Title: Windows10 & External Hard Drive

    Hi,

    I've connected my two LaCie external hard drives (rugged and D2 Quadra) to a Windows 10 laptop but they both are not working. They are ExFat and I've tried to reformat them. Windows 10 can see the drives, I can copy and paste files from
    the drives to the laptop. But I cannot transfer files from the laptop to the drives. All the drivers are updated. It looks like my dives are not fully compatible with Windows10? Any suggestions please? Can I have a list of external hard drives compatible with
    Windows 10 please?
