  1. Looking to clean up Boot SSD, any way to migrate non-windows 10 files?


    I have a 128GB Kingston SSD as my boot drive, and it seems like it has been getting suspiciously full despite me installing everything on my other drives. I am wondering if anybody knows of a way to migrate any files not specific to windows 10's base installation to another drive

    Running windows 10 1903 Build 18362.535

  3. Win 10 clean install question

    This is what I would do:
    • Shrink the hard drive partition until it's small enough to fit on the SSD.
    • Clone the Windows 8.1 setup to the SSD.
    • Boot off the SSD and make sure that Windows 8.1 is happy (i.e., no complaints about activation).
    • Upgrade to Windows 10 on the SSD.
    This way, you know that Windows 8.1 has a valid setup on the SSD before doing anything else. Plus, the Windows 10 upgrade will be processed much faster on the SSD. Finally, you still have the hard drive setup to fall back to if anything goes wrong.
