Hi !

If the old disk is OK strap it as SLAVE and connect it to the same bus cable that goes to the new disk. The new disk must be strapped as MASTER.

Start your PC and have a look in BIOS setup that BIOS has recognized the old disk.Exit BIOS setup, continue BOOT and copy all your favorite files. NOT OS FILES.

Why is hard disk is popular than floppy disk?

Hard disk is more popular than floppy disk because hard disk can store huge amount of data in term of mega byte to giga byte. It stores the data safely compared to floppy disk. External hard disk are portable so they can transfer the data from one computer to another . But floppy disk has low capacity and are vey slow compared to hard disk . It can be easily damaged when exposed to heat and dust. Files can be easily corrupted and data transfer rate is slow compared to hard disk. Nowadays, computer are built without floppy drives which is needed to read floppy disks.

How do you transfer data to a floppy disk?

From which platform? From a Windows platform, insert the floppy into your disk drive. You can do this any number of ways but I'll give you the two easiest for me: 1.

In the program that opens the data you want to transfer (so perhaps Word for a paper you wrote), have the data open in the window, click on File, Save As, and Save it to your floppy drive (usually drive A). Close program. Remove disk.

How do you transfer data from a old computer to a new computer?

Answer There are many ways you can transfer data from one computer to another. These include using a USB data transfer cable.
