I have a new Dell XPS 420 desktop PC. I want to transfer all my 10 years worth of files that include music, pictures and documents to my new Dell PC. The following files are located on my drive D. My question is, if it’s possible to just copy the whole drive rather than copy the files one by one? The drive C that contains the operating system is now useless since my new Dell has a dual drive bay, wherein one bay contains two drives and the other one is an open one. And also, I’m wondering how that drive will appear considering that my new computer is showing two drives?
