I’ve got my OS installed on a 2TB WD drive and it’s maxed out. In the past I would just use a cloning program to copy all the data to the new drive which is great but I’ve now hit a snag.
I’ve got myself a 3TB WD drive as its replacement which needs to be formatted as a GPT partition in order to use the full capacity but my OS drive is formatted to MBR so I can’t just clone it as I usually would.
So the question is?
How do you get all my old content onto my new drive using the new GPT partition without having to reinstall windows?
The obvious answer would be just to install windows and start from the begining but this isn’t an option since my 2TB OS drive ONLY has programs installed - yes thats right - just programs…so thats over a 1000 programs that I use and I am not going to install them all again.
Is there any way that I can copy all the old data over to the new 3TB drive using the GPT format and have it fully work as if I had cloned it?
Any help with this is greatly appreciated
