Hi,
I am upgrading my data drive (1tb 2.5' hdd) in my laptop to a 2tb 2.5' hdd. Windows is on the ssd m.2 so that is not an issue, its just for storage. Can I just attach via usb, copy and paste and then insert the drive or will this lead to problems? Is cloning neccessary?
Any advice much appreciated.

Thanks,
In the near future I will also be upgrading my ssd, am I correct in thinking the best way is:
remove both ssd and hdd, insert new ssd only, install windows fresh from usb to ssd, then re-insert data drive?
