Hey guys , i have an Asus Rog G751J , it has an 128gb SSD for windows only and another 1tb hdd for games and other stuff; i want to upgrade only the 1tb hdd to a 2tb hdd, how can i copy my games from the 1tb to the new 2tb hdd without the instalation , i mention that the SSD with the windows and registry will remain there, if i just copy paste will it work?, because the registrys will still be on the SSD tnx, sorry for my bad english!

I'd get an external usb hdd dock, plug the new drive in there, copy all the files from the original hdd to it, power down, swap drives, power up, change new drive letter to old drive letter. Might need a reboot there at the end.

Internal caddy? That should be sata and faster. However, since only using once or twice I'd go with cheaper over speed.
