Would anyone know if I can swap the main drive of my Wondows 7 computer (i.e., the C: drive, the one on which Windows is installed) for a bigger one, without having to reinstall everything? My problem is that my C: is the smallest drive, and I've found out this morning, after I let some jobs go overnight, that it is completely full. It actually said 0 bytes left on C
. First time this even happens to me... The jobs used files on other drive with space, but I guess it also needs space on C to work...
Anyway, I was wondering if I could do the following: do a full C drive backup with the Windows backup utility on a seperate drive, physically remove this 150Gb C drive, and replace it with a 500Gb drive. Then put the backup back on that drive so that it has the exact same content as before, only on a bigger drive.
So is that possible? Would that work, or would it create corruption? Any other suggestions are welcome... Thanks
