|ok...you have mo much space (i guess),but do you have to copy all data ???...copy the relevant things...|
A good plan. There are a few things on the drive that I'd very much like to save. The rest of the data is mostly replaceable, it would just be a bit of a pain to do it.
A couple of dumb questions:
1. why is your partition so large?
2. why don't you have backups?
1. At the time, I saw no need to divide the hard drive into multiple smaller partitions. It was for bulk file storage. I usually end up having to say this at least once when I get tech support on forums, but... My system is by no means reasonable or realistic. I have approximately 2TB of hard drive space (the vast majority of it filled) spread across 5 hard drives, which, with the exception of one, are filled up by one large NTFS partition.
2. Like I said above, the majority of the data *is* replaceable, it's just that I'd rather not have to go through the trouble of replacing ~500gb of data, understandably. There are only a few things that I can think of off the top of my head that I would really like not to lose on that hard drive.
