Hello, I am planning to buy an SSD and I wanted to clone over Windows 7 onto the new SSD but would I have to delete all of my other programs and games because I am currently taking up around 119GB's of Hard Drive space and I am only going to buy a 60GB.

Well, Intel has a cloning tool for their SSD's, but I don't know if it works with any other brands. There may be a 3rd party cloning tool out there you could take advantage of. Google it.

yes I know exactly what I am going to use to clone it but I was wondering if I would have to delete everything except for windows 7 and a couple other programs since it will only be a 60GB SSD

You can do cloning and all that stuff but personally I would still favor of doing a fresh clean installation to the new SSD as this usually yields minimal to no issues later on.

Apps and games can be reinstalled, just prepare to backup the important files (e.g. save files, environment settings, etc.)

How would I do that? I still have everything that windows 7 came with...
