Hi. My co-worker is giving me two hard drives in which I would copy all the information from one harddrive to another.

1) Is this possible?
2) Link to instructions? Or teach me how to in this thread.
3) I assume I do this using my existing pc.

If by "all the information" you mean the fully bootable Windows files, then its not that easy. You need a program such as Ghost (not free) to do this.

If you only want to copy non Windows system data, then just use Windows Explorer and copy and paste.

But first you need to fit the second drive to your PC as a Slave Drive.

If you re-read your post, you may realise that the instructions are not going to be easy. We have no idea if you are using Windows or Macintosh computers, or what version of operating system you use, or anything about your hardware.

For instance is it a laptop or a desktop?
