My 200 GB harddrive is full of flacs, and I want to cut & paste half of the flac-files to my second 150 GB harddrive... so to have some free space again on the 200 GB harddrive.

I would just cut & paste the files from one (internal) hd to the other (internal) other.

Here's where I am getting paranoid. Can the cut & paste do any harm to the files or alter them in any possible way? I don't think so, because after all - it is just digital bytes copied from one hd to the other.

Someone pls. confirm this, so I can overcome my paranoia.

Thank you,

Back off haters - strictly love we deal with.

foobar would (I assume) report corrupt files - but there are just easier ways.

Why use foobar then re-rip, when you can just use an MD5 hash and re-copy? The second option is a lot easier in my opinion.

I'm on a horse.
