1st: your topic is misleading. you don't want to copy windows but xampp
2nd: this is the german part of the xampp support board. The english part is a forums below beginning with "XAMPP IN ENGLISH". So i should answer in german here.

What you have to do is:
- shut down your xampp applications (and xampp windows services if used)
- mark the whole xampp folder
- copy it to the new harddisk/usb stick
- execute the setup_xampp.bat file for relocation and to make the installation without drive letters
- try to start Apache and MySQL from your new path.

Remember that you can't use Windows services with portable Drives.
We don't provide any support via personal channels like PM, email, Skype, TeamViewer!
