    Can you copy HDD?

    So I need to know if I can make a copy of a HDD that has all my games. I have NTFS HDD with wbfs or something folder with all the games on it. Can I just copy that folder on the new HDD? Also can I use the extra space to hold files used on a computer or ps3? Basically use Data file? Thanks.

    Uhhhh, if it is NTFS, it is fully compatable with a pc. There fore you can move stuff around and copy stuff all day long.

    Thank you. My nintendo is with a friend so I couldn't test it out but I saw a deal for a external drive I wanted so I wanted to know if I could or not before I purchased it. Thanks for the clarification.

    It should (!) not be an issue but there's no guarantee. I already tried it with an older Win XP and although it was NTFS it did not work although it worked properly with my W7.
