Hello, I am sick of my old 5400 rpm green drive.

I bought a 1.5TB 7200 rpm drive and a 120GB SSD.

Now what is the best and easiest way of moving my data to the 1.5TB and windows to the SSD as well as a couple key programs. Also, would having Firefox installed on my SSD speed up browsing?

Also I back up my data with Backblaze, so I'm not too worried about losing data.

Thanks for any suggestions.

I agree...

You could install your Windows on your SSD while having your old Green drive unplugged. After you have set up your SSD, I would recommend you connect your green drive and transfer files you have on it.
