How to: Move Files from SSD to HDD

Geeks - Moving files from a solid-state drive (SSD) to a hard disk drive (HDD) is a simple process that can be accomplished in a few steps. Here's how to do it:

Connect the HDD to your computer. This can be done through a USB port or by attaching the HDD to the motherboard. Make sure that the HDD is properly formatted and has enough free space to accommodate the files you want to transfer.

Open a File Explorer window and navigate to the folder on your SSD that contains the files you want to move.

Select the files you want to transfer by holding down the "Ctrl" key and clicking on each file. You can also select all the files in a folder by pressing "Ctrl + A."

Right-click on the selected files and choose "Cut" from the context menu. This will remove the files from the SSD and place them in the clipboard.

Navigate to the folder on the HDD where you want to move the files.

Right-click in the folder and choose "Paste" from the context menu. This will transfer the files from the clipboard to the HDD.

Wait for the files to finish transferring. The time it takes will depend on the size of the files and the speed of your computer.

That's it! You've successfully moved files from your SSD to your HDD.

Keep in mind that moving files from an SSD to an HDD will not affect the performance of the files or the programs they're associated with. However, accessing files on an HDD may be slightly slower than accessing them on an SSD due to the difference in speed between the two types of storage.

If you have any further questions or need additional help, don't hesitate to ask.
