I’ve been running a Dell Optiplex 780 (quad core 16GB), it’s served me well but there’s just no room for expansion, it’s a SFF and I thought I could live with an internal for all my Kontakt libraries. I’m now at the stage where I’m having to save projects with Kontakt files on the USB (not great).
I’ve bought a Dell Studio XPS 8100 i5, there’s space for 2 (or 3) HDDs, I currently have 2 installed.
So here’s the rub… rather and go through the pain and anguish of locating, installing, authorisation, trouble shooting I planning to ‘clone’ the HD from my working system, and install it in the new one.
I’ve done some reading and know it’s possible but not without its problems, has anyone ever tried this before, were you successful and if not why not?
I have a horrible feeling I’m going to have to do this the painful way, I’d really appreciate any insight you may have?
BTW Both systems are running Win 10 64-bit!
