I recently bought a new hard disk drive, since my old one was getting full (and seemed to have some corrupt files on it). I want to make the secondary drive the main drive, especially since it has more space. How would I go about doing that? Setting it as the main drive and transferring all the required files onto it?

What is primary/secondary? New one = currently secondary and wish to make it primary? I.e. for Windows?

If so, clone the old drive to the new one, and wipe the old one. Done, I think.

Please give us a clear description of all the drives involved here.
And a screencap of your Disk Management window.
