    Move windows to new SSD whilst keeping settings, etc


    Hi


    My Windows SSD is full and I can't download updates, etc. I have a new larger SSD and want to replace disc without losing all my settings, etc. My data is stored on a separate HDD. Is there a "migration" tool or something. Unless I buy a new cable, there does not seem to be a spare connector to have both SSDs installed at the same time.


    Thank you!

    Tim

    :)

    SSD storage keeps filling up on its own

    Hi Ash,

    There's a possibility that the files are just hidden. As an initial troubleshooting, we suggest following the steps below on how to display hidden files that's eating space of your SSD:

    • On the Search bar, type folder, and then select
      Show hidden files and folders from the search results.
    • Under Advanced settings, select Show hidden files, folders, and drives,
      and then select OK.

    Keep us in the loop with the result.
