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

Same as fowang said, create an image of the SSD and restore the image to whatever drive/SSD you want.
