Windows 7 Boot drive transfer

Hi I hope someone can help,

I have a 60gb SSD which I am presently using as my WIndows 7 boot drive, all of my picture documents and prgrams are all located on a separte SATA 2tb drive within my system.

I now wish to upgrade my boot drive as I have run out of memory. Is there a way in which to do this without to that the new SSD drive to be installed will recognise all my preexisting programs and documents on the SATA. I really do not want to to have to uninstall all my programs on the SATA and then re install when I have installed my new SSD boot up drive.

Thanks in advance

Ben

  1. take an image using some backup utility like acronis and copy that to your 2tb hdd
  2. fowang,

    Thanks for you reply, however, I don't want to copy windows onto the program/my documents hard drive I wish to copy it onto a new larger SSD boot drive, any ideas?
  3. Same as fowang said, create an image of the SSD and restore the image to whatever drive/SSD you want.
