Solved Data Transfer Question Tags: Hard Drives SSD Storage Product Last response: May 19, 2010 2:06 PM in Storage Share xxgtasaxx May 15, 2010 5:27:48 PM First off I have a 120GB Fujitsu 2.5" HDD http://www.newegg.com/product/product.aspx?Item=N82E168... and I want to use it in my desktop temporarily for my Windows 7 Home Premium, can I use it? Second, 2 weeks later I will have the money for a 40GB 2.5" SSD Intel X25-V http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... that I would like to transfer the OS from the temporary drive to the SSD? I know the SSDs Read speed is 170/MB and the write is 35/MB but that doesn't matter to me because it's faster than a hard drive at 7200RPM.

Install the OS on the 2.5 HDD, then using the SSD mfr's utilities to clone your 2.5 HDD to the SSD. The Intel support page has a link to cloning software. m 0 l xxgtasaxx May 17, 2010 7:54:16 PM I just got another idea, what if I installed it to the Hard Drive then when I get my SSD I format my HDD then reinstall my OS on my SSD since that's all I'm putting on it. m 0 l Related resources Data transfer for upgrade build question - Forum USB Bridge/Data Transfer Buyer Question - Forum Data transfer question - Forum Questions regarding data transfer from PC network to mobile network - Forum External harddrive data transfer question - Forum Can't find your answer ?

If you load the OS to the HDD before you get your SSD, you'll have time to configure it the way you want it. Cloning that HDD to the SSD saves your configuration, and the time it takes to install the OS to the SSD.
