Switching from hdd to sdd Tags: Hard Drives Flash Drive Storage Last response: February 3, 2013 7:40 AM in Storage Share scassidy100 February 2, 2013 11:41:02 PM So i hear sdd is the way to go for boot up time and i have just aquired my new pc but, seeing as its new i would like to keep the whole process safe! by keeping windows on both the hdd and sdd. The sdd in question will be a flash drive, a maxell 8gb. how can i copy all the things nessicary for this to the sdd? As i said im wanting to leave a copy on my hdd too so at any point i can switch back. Also, what will i actually need to copy over? drivers aswell as windows? And lastly is there any free software to help, thankyou!
