Whilst fettling a new PC I am trying to transfer stored files from old to new.
A drive from the old has some stuff on it that I want but is going to go into old to enable me to sell it.
As it was just for bulk storage it has no OS.
If I put it in the old can I partition it to accept an OS which will allow me to transfer the files I want?
If I just put an OS on it then it will wipe the disc.
Can I partition AND keep the files?
I have access to a Hirens disc if that is any use, or can I partition from the BIOS?
Already I have tried putting the old disc in the new PC but, for some reason it did not work.
My theory is that, if I can hang an OS onto the drive then I could email myself much of the stuff.
Thank you and I am sorry to be high maintenance.
