Migrating to SSD

Just installed a new Intel X25 80GB SSD (merry xmas to me ^_^). Here's my current setup:

500GB, partitioned into:
* 25GB NTFS (c:\, win7 install)
* 150GB NTFS (e:\, tools)
* 300GB NTFS (f:\, games)
* 25GB Ext3 (openSUSE)

I tried using Acronis to migrate my C drive to the SSD, but Acronis would only migrate the entire hard drive at once and not a single partition of it.

Alternate method? I'm assuming just using TeraCopy to move everything over and then setting the new drive as the system drive is a bad idea. Also, I'd prefer to reinstall only as a last resort.

  1. You basicly have no choice but to reinstall, there are problems when you don't with ssd's.
    To transfer an image with the OS on it onto a new drive, you have to image the whole drive, including all partitions. Acronis will fit it onto a smaller drive as long as the amount of space used by the files is less then the capacity of the new drive.

    my opinion, too many damn partitions...
    you're better off with adding actual HDD or two with the SSD..


    Can you explain why too many partitions are bad?
    Thanks.
