Hello my name is Ethan, It is nearing the holidays and computer hardware updates are inevitable. My hard drive currently is a 500 gigabyte Seagate model and it is almost full. I am soon to receive and new 2 terabyte Seagate model. I am going to use a raid system on my motherboard to combine the hard drives. I have done some research and I have found out that using raid will wipe your hard drive. This is something that does not appeal to me and I would like to copy all my hard drive onto an external 1 terabyte drive. If anyone could just leave a reply on a walk through on how to do this in my specific case I would really appreciated it.
