comment Turn old boot disk into secondary drive without losing data
theres always software solutions like Acronis but you still need sufficient space to backup and compress your data. specially if its 1.5TB. but glad you got it sorted !

comment Turn old boot disk into secondary drive without losing data
unfortunately, that cant be done without backing up your data. assuming you have a tower instead of a laptop can you not get a 2TB HDD and back up your data ?

so you want to delete the OS partition the 2TB drive and expand the data partition to the deleted OS partition ? once you boot using the new HDD (with your newly installed OS) just use fdisk to do this. heres a guide to resize a partition, htmlgraphic.com/how-to-resize-partition-without-data-loss
