Question for computer experts out there...

I bought a new HD for my PC to replace my data drive which (at only 80GB) was getting full. My HD set-up before the new drive went in:

C: Operating System (200GB IDE NTSC)
D: Data (80GB IDE NTSC)

Yesterday, I put a new HD in the computer and copied all the data from D: to the new drive (I named it X).

C: Operating System (200GB IDE NTSC)
D: Data (80GB IDE NTSC)
X: New Data (250GB IDE NTSC)

Now, I want to permanently remove the original data drive (D) and replace it with the new drive (X). I want my Outlook and all other programs (Quicken, etc...) to recognize the new drive seamlessly.

My question: Do I remove the current data drive (D) and replace it with the new data drive (X) on the identical cable, then rename it "D" like the original drive was? Will that work? Is there a better way?

I figured it out myself!

"Yes" is the answer to my question.

If you use windows Xp you could try the files and setting trasfer wizard under system tools in accessories. Its easy and painless.
