    Move C Drive to SSD from hard drive


    21H1 Built 19043.1110 I have a Dell Inspiron 3580 that comes with a 128GB SSD and a 1TB Toshiba hard drive. After trying to install a duel boot with Win 10 Pro and Linux I see in Disk Management that Windows (CMove C Drive to SSD from hard drive :) is on the 1 TB drive. I can only boot into Win 10 and every thing works OK. I cannot find where Linux was installed to. Question - How do I get Win 10 back to SSD drive without having to reinstall Win 10?

    :)

  2. ssd and hard drive

    I bought my HP All in one at the MS Store. It has a SSD and hard drive. One is listed as C and one a D, set up by them. When I try to download a lot of pictures I get the message that my drive is full but my 1 TB hard drive is not full. How should it be
    configured so that doesn't happen?

    Hard drives listed as SSD drives

    Upgraded to Win 10 Pro from Win 7 Pro.

    Have 2 Hard drives in Raid 1 set up.

    Win 10 lists these drives as SSD drives in System Properties.

    How do I change the listing of these drives to HD so I can optimize them?

  4. Move C Drive to SSD from hard drive

    Unaccounted for Dell Laptop Hard Drive space on C: drive SSD

    I have a Dell Inspiron 3793 running Windows 10 Home version 1909. The C drive is a 256GB SSD, and I am noticing a bunch of unaccounted for hard drive space (see pictures below). Drive properties show 163GB used, but when I select all the files they only total to 94GB (69GB unaccounted for). If you look on the WinDirStat listing below, there is a 32GB file labelled "<Unknown>". What is going on? What can I do to free up the space?

    Get a disk cloning software and do the cloning job, from HDD to SSD on PC.
    Change boot priority to cloned SSD in BIOS or remove HDD to test if you can boot up successfully.
    Cloning method is safe but still it is good to create a backup image for your Win10 before you start.
    For detailed steps with screenshots, you may need: migrate Windows 10 to SSD without data loss.
