    Seriously? I obviously don't have the installation disc and I can't download it. That's why I need to TRANSFER it. I got this hdd from a friend because my windows installation on the SSD is corrupted, I just want to transfer it before I reinstall windows on my SSD

    Which version of Office?
    Do you have the license key?

    There is no 'transfer' of applications like you're thinking.
  4. You could download and use the free LibreOffice which will open .DOC and .DOCX files, and is largely compatible with Office, since you don't have the install disc for Office. As USAFret says, you can't just transfer applications from one drive to another.

    Good luck.
  5. You can transfer program files to another HD through the system or third party apps but is not usually recommended and requires altering the registry.

    You can download Office on the new HD at any time, you shouldn't need to transfer a 'core' program file.

    Wadiyatalkinabeet, office has to be re-installed as it is spread thru out windows & registry.
