You've said what you are trying to do but nothing about what issues or difficulties you are having.

All you should have to do is plug the external drive into a USB socket. The new drive ought to then be visible along with the rest - use Windows key + E.

What you do next depends on whether the drive has any backup software installed. If it is empty then you just Copy and Paste your files across.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
