can anyone help please, i have 2 hard drives in my system h/d 1 is 40 gb and holds windows xp and few applications, h/d 2 is 15 gb and holds all my games. i am going to ureplace h/d 2 with a larger h/d (80 gb), my question is can i copy my games over to the new hard drive and remove h/d 2 without causing system problems/comflicts or should i just uninstall my games and reinstall them onto my new h/d (80 gb).
i hope i have written this clear enough, been rushing this abit.

nigel.

In order to maintain the correct info in the Registry, you will need to reinstall all of the apps that you are moving to the new drive.
So, uninstall, reinstall would be the way to go.
