About 9 months ago I build a new PC because my old one would not turn on. I said someday that I would add the old 160GB hard drive to my new PC and recover the files on it. I have lots of genealogy and past tax info that I would like to recover from my old HD to my new PC. I guess the time has come to put the old HD into my new system. My new PC has a 500GB HD and runs on Windows 7 OS. The old hard drive is (or was) operating on Windows XP. Is it as simple as adding the HD as a slave and then moving the files from one disk to another? I suspect there may be a conflict with the old XP OS and the new Win7 that I am using now. I also now have a 1TB Western Digital external HD added that I use just to back up everything. I didn't have that on my old PC. Any help/comments would be appreciated. Thanks.
