Hard drives fill up, and eventually die: It’s a fact of PC
life. And while it’s easy to add a new, empty drive to a PC as an adjunct to an
existing, in-use drive, that’s sometimes not really what you want: What’s better
is to add a new, fast, capacious drive, and move your data, intact, to it. This
way, you can pick up more or less where you left off, and you don’t have to
rebuild or reinstall the operating system (unless you want to). If you keep the
old, high-mileage drive in the system at all, it’s just as extra space— not as
the main drive.
