  2. OS on new SSD, keep existing data on HDD and use as external drive

    Hi,

    use steps you suggested, there should be no problem.

    Just replace HDD with SSD first then run installation. Do not forget to remove Windows files from HDD after the end of a process.

  3. Confused about hard drives: HDD and SSD

    Browsing through the Microsoft Store for a new pc, I see various hard drives listed, such as:

    16GB eMMC

    32GB eMMC

    500GB 5400 RPM HDD

    2GB DDR3L 1600 MHz

    32GB SSD [?]

    64GB SSD

    I understand that solid state drives are good, though expensive. What I don't understand is what size of an SSD would be the equivalent of, say, a terabyte HD? It seems that 64GB is the largest SSD offered here. What size HDD would equal that capacity?

    And, BTW, what is an eMMC?
