I have only one 2TB WD Cav. Blk HDD. But I changed my mind. I Want to install this OS on an SSD instead and use my HDD for data. How can I erase everything off my HDD? Do I need to format it? I don't care about losing any info or data I have placed on it as long as I can restart fresh. Thank you. ps. I want to just buy a 60-80GB SSD JUST for Windows. What brand do you recommend?
