Hi, yes you can. Just take off your harddisk containing the files ans programs you have mentioned from your CPU unit and transfer it to another computer. You must set your harddisk as Slave. There's a jumper setting labeled in your harddisk just follow where the jumper is set as slave in your harddisk.

*Drop me a comment when you are done and if the other computer recognizes your harddisk drive or not. I'll be waiting. I am here to help you.

Files are pretty easy to transfer, and there are a few ways to do it. You can some kind of removable storage device such as an external hard drive or a thumb drive. You can also set up a network between the computers, which can be done using the network setup wizard, which can be found in the control panel.

Transferring programs is the hard part. If you don't have very many programs, you might just want to reinstall them on the new computer if you have the installation discs or files. If you have a lot of programs with settings that you would like to keep, you may want to purchase a transferring program like PCmover, which will transfer files, programs, and settings between two computers.

Another option is to use a disk imaging program, which creates an exact copy of your entire hard drive which can be moved onto another computer. There are many programs you can use to do this, some of which cost money, whereas some can be downloaded for free. You can find a list of free programs here: http://www.thefreecountry.com/utilities/backupandimage.shtml

The disk imaging option is definitely more difficult than a straight transfer though, since it just copies them to a file rather than actually installing them on the new computer. This option is mainly useful if you want to keep programs that you do not have installation discs or files for.

Hello I have an ascer aspire ast 180 ea381b with 160 gb of memory and it is always telling me that I am low on disk space. the C drive has 71.9 GB but only 4.3 M free. The D driver has 71.6 GB and 68.4...


4.3 GB is very less for current day windows versions (you have not specified what version of windows is installed in your computer). Please move some of your files like music, movies, photographs and documents to the D drive and free up the C drive. Ensure you free up atleast 15 GB in your C drive. Also try removing / uninstalling unwanted programs installed in your computer.

I just aquired a Dell PC that is newer than my HP PC. I have no idea on how to move all my files and programs over with out loosing anything. Can you send me some instructions through email? Thanks, ...


You cannot just move your programs over, you need to install your programs using the various program installation CDs, because the installation process copies DLL files as well as putting data onto the registery file.
You can copy your data files from your HP PC to a USB memory stick and then plug this USB memory stick into the Dell's USB port and copy the data files to the various folders on the Dell PC.

Can i convert a 32 bit to a 64 bit


You can use the Upgrade option during Windows 7 installation, which preserves your files, settings, and programs, only if you're currently running a 32-bit version of Windows Vista and you want to upgrade to the 32-bit version of Windows 7. Similarly, if you are running a 64-bit version of Windows Vista, you can only perform an upgrade to a 64-bit version of Windows 7. For more information, go to Upgrading to Windows 7: frequently asked questions on the Windows website.
If you want to move from a 32-bit version of Windows to a 64-bit version of Windows 7 or vice versa, you'll need to back up your files and choose the Custom option during Windows 7 installation. Then, you'll need to restore your files and reinstall your programs. For more information about performing a custom installation, see Installing and reinstalling Windows 7‍.
gl_ico.png Notes
  • To install a 64-bit version of Windows 7 on a computer running a 32-bit version of Windows, you'll need to start, or boot, your computer using a 64-bit Windows 7 installation disc or files.
  • If you start your computer using a 64-bit Windows 7 installation disc or files, but your computer isn't capable of running a 64-bit version of Windows, you'll see a Windows Boot Manager error. You'll need to use a 32-bit Windows 7 installation disc or files instead.
  • Windows Easy Transfer can't transfer files from a 64-bit version of Windows to a 32-bit version of Windows. If you're running a 64-bit version of Windows Vista but you plan to install a 32-bit version of Windows 7, you can move your files to an external location manually or use Backup and Restore in Windows Vista. For more information, go to Back up your files and

Keeping some space in c drive vacant is always recommended. Instead of moving program files you should move your audio and video files form drive having Windows in it.

2 hard drives


Switching the two is a big big job that involves either significant BIOS changes and or reloading windows.

Instead of doing this, move all your files to the big drive. Keep only the system on the "C" drive.

Remember,. nearly all progams want do install default to the C drive ...

If you insist, you will have to copy all of windows to the other drive, change D to C (make it the master, Cable Select or Pin Select? Serial interface or IDE, SCSI?

Several questions you must resolve before you make this move.

Really, the simplest thing to do is move your stuff to the big drive (or you could dump it too!)

Local Disk C running out of space but the D drive has plenty of space. How to make the D drive the primary partition? Os in on C drive windows Vista.


Do you run Disk Cleanup regularly (once a month)? This will free up disk space on the C drive, it remover old temporary files and compressed files as well as other files.
You can also move and save your data files to the D drive, so the C drive has only the operating system files and program files.

External Hard Drive


some external hard drives comes with software that would enable you to backup entire files/folders with a single click or command. Some with a built in switch that perform the same action.
As for an entire OS, you said you want to "move" the entire system? I guess you can do this using a program like norton ghost, that will create an exact image of your OS and place it to your hard disk.
