hard transferring

so i got new new sata drive up and running with a fresh install and drivers and updates. now i want to transfer all files i want to get everything from the other drive and use it as a "dumb file" storage drive ei video music and in my case comics books. should i just drag everything over that i need that doesn't need to be installed or just look at all the programs that are on there and a do a fresh install of the programs so that they will be included in the new registry or does that matter? i remember the thread i had about this a while ago and want to make an image is the fresh install and save it on the old drive. when all is said and done i would like the sata drive to have all games and programs and the ide drive to have everything else. how should i go about getting rid of the os on the ide drive? right now i have it in a duel boot.

"Copy *.*"? That's probably not right. Little help please?

I'm afraid there is no easy way That I know of unless you had a back-up or a clone and were just goiong to move install it onto the SATA dr.
It's the good old fashiond way, install your programs one at a time on your sata dtrive.
It's the way I prefer any way.

I agree, with PorPorMe. There isnt really a simple way to do this if I'm reading your request correctly. The most sure fire way of working, is install all your applications as per the usual, copy across all the data from the old drive to the new that you want to keep. Format the old drive, then copy the data back. This will ensure that the hard drive is in the cleanest, fastest state for use.
