Anything to know before moving C: Drive (Win10 partition) to SSD drive ?
Using cloning software for the move of C:
-----------
Maybe by late next week I will install the new SSD (ordered 512GB SSD) to replace C: Drive C:drive is currently a partition (300GB) of a 1 TB hard drive, which has both Windows 10 and data.)
I will take it add it to D: using partition software.
---------
The SSD will be 512GB C: drive.
------
The hard drive 1 TB will be D: E: F:
-------
G: single drive
------
H: (only)
1)Sturmovik BOX
2)DCS Open beta

-------
(back to C: (SSD) has DCS  release version.)

Total 1.75 TB (0.75 TB is SSD)

Plus 4 TB (USB backup and storage Hard Drive)

the most important issue would be to make sure the destination drive is same size or larger than the source drive. i am sure you have that covered. i have done this countless times with Acronis. my current computer is a refurb Alienware R6 that came with a 1 TB mechanical drive. i cloned it to a 1 TB SSD and then to a 2 TB SSD when space became an issue. good luck!

my c: hard drive is 350gb my ssd that will replace c: is 512gb. and when it formats it will loose maybe 20 gb or less. so I have a surplus of 150gb to spare after the transfer. and even then there is probably 100gb of crap I don't need on the old C: partition on the hard drive. right now my computer boots very slow, with the hard drive.

download a program called windirstat. run it on C and look for heaviest folders and deem whether or not contents can be deleated. usually anything TEMP. uninstall what you dont use. then migrate. dont need to migrate a bunch of garbage. it will take less time obviously.
