What you want to do is to clone the OS/Program drive. You can use Easeus Todo Backup
, or Ghost 15, or True Image or others.
Before you do anything, though, make a System Repair Disk -- just type that into the Start run box and click on the Wizard at the top of the list. That helps to fix any hiccups from changing disks in the SRP.
Formatting an ssd is fine, defragmenting is not a good idea.
