    Replacing HDD with a SDD


    I have an Inspiron 5477 AIO and want to replace its HDD with as large a SDD I can afford. The problem is I don't know how to hook up the SDD to affect the migration. Is there an additional SATA connection available to which I can connect the SDD? Then manual makes no mention of such a thing.
    I hope someone here is familiar with the machine to guide me.

    I plan to use Mini Tools Partition Magic to do the migration.

    Thank you.

    :)

  2. SDD and a HDD windows 10

    I have Windows 10 installed on a 525gb SDD. I have a 1tb HDD that I'm using for my data. I've been reading a lot of conflicting tweaks to use on the SDD. Help!

    1. Should I eliminate the swap on the SDD? I do a have a windows managed swap file on the HDD.

    2. Should I turn off indexing on the SDD?

    3. Should I turn off system restore on the SDD?

    Most of the articles I've been reading have been a couple of years old. I know that the current SDDs are better but do these same tweaks apply now?

    Any info and suggestions are appreciated.

    Thanks

  3. HDD to SDD OS transfer

    I am trying to clone (or even image) my 1TB-HDD to a Kingston 120GB-SDD. Space is not issue as I'm only using 70GB on the HDD. My problem is sector size. My HDD sectors are 512 (not 512e) and the SDD sectors are 4096. I'm also unable to use my system image/backup
    because it is on a HDD with the same sector size (512). I've tried a number of cloning programs, including Macrium Reflect, with no success. Is there a way around this?
