  1. Move OS from one SSD to a new (larger)) boot drive


    Hi


    A few years ago I built a gaming computer with a 128GB SSD boot drive and I would now like to replace this with a larger drive. Is there a simple way to move the OS (64 bit) from the old boot drive to the new one or am I going to have to buy a new key?

    :)

    I currently have windows 10 home on my computer and i want to clone the boot drive SSD (250 Gb) to a new larger 500Gb SSD and have that as my. Boot drive. Which migration software works best with windows 10, free or otherwise. They are Samsung SSD's so
    i was just going to try their migration software that comes with the new SSD. Any recommendations would be appreciated.

  3. Replace boot and storage SSD with larger SSD: Move OS and programs/files to new Drive

    Hello,

    I have one SSD that contains my Windows 10 installation as well as some common apps/games. I recently purchased a larger SSD that I would like to use instead and the old SSD will be wiped clean and put into a different PC. What is the best way to move all
    of my apps, files and OS to the new drive without losing any data or having to reinstall any programs?

    Move OS from one SSD to a new (larger)) boot drive

    New computer - how to move OS to new (larger) drive?

    Since it is a new computer, your current SSD will contain the OS, Drivers, Manufacturer specific apps, Recovery Partition . . . etc. your best option is to clone that drive onto the new SSD

    Remove your 1 TB HDD and replace it with your new 1TB SSD

    Then use 3rd party software like the free version of AOMAI Partition Assistant to clone existing SSD onto new SSD

    Download AOMEI Partition Assistant
