  1. Windows 10 on SSD and HDD


    Hello everyone. Can some one explain me why Windows 10 on SSD is sluggish than a Windows 10 on HDD? Same software - from clean install, on same laptop and still Windows 10 on SSD is slower than Windows 10 on its original HDD. Thanks!

  2. 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.

  3. OS on new SSD, keep existing data on HDD and use as external drive

    Hi,

    use steps you suggested, there should be no problem.

    Just replace HDD with SSD first then run installation. Do not forget to remove Windows files from HDD after the end of a process.

  4. Windows 10 on SSD and HDD

    Does Windows 10 automatically recognise that a SSD has replaced a HDD?

    I have recently replaced the HDD in my Windows 10 laptop with a SSD. As I understand it, Windows periodically runs a defragmentation in the background on a HDD. However, SSD drives do not require defragmenting and running such a tool can shorten the life
    of a SSD.

    The SSD was a clone of the HDD and not a new installation. Will Windows 10 recognize that the laptop now has a SSD and stop its background defragmentation or do I need to take specific steps to prevent this activity occurring on the SSD? If I need to take
    action please advise on the steps I should take.

    Thanks for any advice anyone can offer.
