Can you transfer your old computer's hard drive into your new one when building/buying a new one? I bought a new PC, but I don't want to abandon my lovely games and pictures on the old PC's hard drive. Any suggestion for me? How do you transfer a hard drive to a new PC? Thank you in advance.

You can transfer the hard drive from your old computer to your new computer. But it's about the same as buying a new car, pulling out the old motor, and putting it in the new car. Of course, you can choose to do this. You can purchase a hard drive enclosure, a device that allows you to connect your old hard drive to your new computer via USB, which allows you to access the data on your old hard drive.
However, there is a more convenient option for you. You can transfer all data, applications, and settings from the old hard drive to the new computer through third-party tools.
EaseUS Todo PCTrans is a professional transfer tool that allows you to transfer files, apps, and even settings between PCs. You won't lose any data during the process since EaseUS Todo PCTrans will keep your custom settings. You don't need to reinstall any apps. It helps me several times and never lets me down.
Let's learn how:
Step 1. Download and launch EaseUS Todo PCTrans, and choose the PC to PC mode. Then, verify whether the current PC is the source or the target PC.
Step 2. Then, click the "Start" button. On the next screen, choose the target PC and type the "Verification Code" or "Account Password" to connect the two PCs.
Step 3. Then, choose the files on the old laptop hard drive you want to transfer.
Step 4. Click transfer to move the old hard drive to the new PC.
Putting an old keyboard into a new computer is not a wise choice. In my experience, you can transfer your data and settings directly to the new computer to skip the complicated installation process.
