Using Firewire or alternative
« on: October 07, 2009, 05:41:24 am »
Need a bit of info from all you computer folks. What is the easiest way to transfer data of my present Hard Drive to a new blank HD.? Do I have to use firewire to one of my other PC`s. Or is there a way of transferring "in house" ie. Installing new HD on 2nd tier in same PC. Presently using older  500GB  HD, 110GB used, 355GB free.
Tks.
cheers

I use an external hard drive Tex, cheap to buy on ebay particularly if you got a spare formatted hard drive. ;D
