    I just added a second hard drive to my computer. How can I transfer files from the old drive to the new one?

    Drag and Drop if you are in Windows.

    I've tried that but not everything seems to work correctly after that.

    What are you trying to do? Copy EVERYTHING? Including Windows itself and the programs? For that you need something like Symantec Ghost.

    If you try to copy programs, then they will not work.
    You will have to reïnstall them but then to the second hard drive.
