I have the laptop in this video, a Sager NP-9377, from a few years ago.

I'd like to perform this upgrade for the HDD myself using this video so I don't have to pay for a service but I've never done this before. How would I transfer the data from my old, smaller HDDs to the new, larger capacity HDDs after I've removed the smaller HDD and replaced them with the larger capacity HDDs? Thank you.

My System

Once you have removed the smaller drive, and installed the newer larger drive. You then would have to install Windows and all of your programs.
Once that is complete you get a USB-SATA Adapter, Dock or Enclosure. Attach your smaller drive to the adapter and plug it into the computer with the newer larger drive. The smaller drive will come up as another drive in This PC (My Computer) You then drag/drop or Copy/Paste your personal files to the new drive. Or
If the smaller drive is working and in good shape, you can use a Clone software like Macrium Reflect. Attach the large drive via the adapter then start Macrium or any other Clone software program like Aomi, Acronis or Easeus and choose to Clone the small drive to the larger one. The clone software will recognize that it's cloning to a larger drive and make the adjustment. Then replace smaller drive with larger drive. The computer should boot and be an exact mirror copy of the smaller drive but with a lot more room.
