    Reinstall Windows 10 to another hard drive

    My first post so I hope I am in the right place. The Hdd that contains my windows !0 is playing up. I have a spare Hdd on my computer, is it possible to reinstall to the other drive. My current Win 10 was a free upgrade from Win 7.

    Hi, you can swap the drive and reinstall with impunity. Activation should be automatic.

    Note: if you were in the habit of using disk imaging (e.g. Macrium Reflect (free) + external disk + its boot medium) you could have restored exactly what you had when the image was created to your new HDD - OS, programs, data, settings, everything.

    Strongly recommended approach here. Several other such programs available.
