Hello all! I've been pondering this lately. I just got a small SSD (around 60 gigs) and I would really prefer not to wipe all my drives and start fresh. Here are my options as I see them, and I would love some input.
1. Wipe Everything, install OS to SSD, everything else to HDDs. Would really prefer not to, I have so much stuff that is not easily backed up.
2. Paragon Migrate OS to SSD software. I've heard that this software can selectively transfer only the OS to the SSD. This is done by check marking which folders on my drive to move. I am a bit skeptical that I can just move the system folder to the SSD and still have everything working...
3. Install OS to SSD, set as first boot device, and just kind of take a metaphorical saw to my existing OS on my HDD, manually deleting system folders (don't need them, taking up space if I install OS to SSD).
Ideas? Input? Better solution? Would love to hear 'em.
One last question. If I had OS on SSD, and program files folder on HDD... lets say I wanted to move an application to my SSD without reinstalling (don't ask why), can I just cut and paste the folder to the other drive and execute the program from there? I know there are registry entries involved and what not, but it should be able to work itself out right? This wouldn't hinder performance of a game would it?
