View Full Version : New HDD but want to keep files from old HDD with windows 7

Okay, I am currently in the middle of building a new computer, it has the mobo, ram, HDD, GPU, CD,DVD combo. All it's missing is a PSU Now I'm planning to put windows 8 onto the HDD that is on the new computer, but I want to be able to put the files that are from my windows 7 onto it. A friend told me to just plug the hard drive right into the case and then use windows easy transfer. Will this work? The reason I post this now is the computer Im on right now is suddenly freezing for well speak of the devil I BETTER POST THIS NOW.

Are you referring to data files? System files? O/S files?
Please...be more specific about your intent.
