  1. Moving WIndows from HDD to SSD with files on it


    I want to move my windows from an hdd to an ssd. The ssd already has stuff on it, but there is enough space for windows on it. However, everywhere ive looked it uses examples of the ssd being wiped. Do I have to delete all the stuff on it for it to work? And if I do, can I just move all the files from the ssd to another drive?

    :)

    Moving files from SSD to HDD?

    So I bought a computer which had 1tb HDD and 128 SSD. Windows is installed to the SSD and now there is only 10gb of available space, because all the apps were installed to the SSD. So my question is - is it possible to move installed applications (Program
    Files/x64 folder) to the HDD drive without losing any data?

  3. Moving files from SSD to HDD

    I want to transfer all the files execpt the ones required to boot up Windows from my SSD to the HDD to keep my SSD free as it is a low capacity one.

    I have tried many methods posted online but couldn't do anything about it and I need the steps to be explained in such a way that even a beginner would understand and not have trouble doing it.

    When I try to cut and paste the files from SSD to HDD it shows the following error message


    Moving WIndows from HDD to SSD with files on it 4b9efbf2-b265-4fb1-a769-56fb3feb05be?upload=true.png


    What can I do about this?

    When I right click the file there's no move option so I have to to select the file and I have to cut and paste it

    Upgraded Windows Transfer from HDD to SSD

    Hi

    My windows was upgraded from 8 to 10 on my laptop few years back. I was trying to get the HDD replaced with SSD. During the copy process, the technician said windows cannot be moved to SSD as it is an upgraded version from 8 to 10.

    Kindly guide if there is a possibility to copy the windows to SSD ? If so, please suggest the steps.
