I have a question about using a new harddrive. I have currently have 2 HDD in my computer, one being the C: drive being my main drive for just the OS which is 300GB, and the second being a 1TB as the F: drive which is for everything else. I think the F: drive is starting to fail and sadly I did not create a RAID array, and I don't think it is possible to create an array without formatting the drive first, is that correct?
If so, is it possible that if I copy every single thing off the F: drive (Does not contain an OS) and put it onto a new drive that is the exact same in every way, then replace it with the current F: drive which I think is failing and use the same drive letter of F: for the new HDD, will all my programs and everything still work? To get this part clear, I am not asking to have to F: drives, I am replace the old one with new one after I copy everything off the old one onto the new one.
I am asking if all my programs will still work because that is where I have every single program installed. I have nothing installed onto the C: drive except the OS. So will all my programs and everything still work the same if I do this?
