Hello. I have Windows 7, 64 Bit. It is on HDD. In May I will buy 128 gig SSD. How can I move Windows 7 to SSD as well as some other programs effectively? What is the procedure, and what would you suggest is the best way to do it? Also if I want to leave desktop, My Documents, and all other folders on my hard drive, will it be possible. So basically what I am asking is, what will be moved with Windows.

Also, I tried twice to backup Windows 7 image, and it failed both times, while I had more than enough space on my external drive. Any suggestions?

Thank you.

Head on over to www.sevenforums.com and check out the tutorials on installing your ssd. Post your questions about the install.

Personally I would do a clean install of W7 on the ssd. Be sure to disconnect the old drive before installing W7.

Hi, Try this EaseUSŪ Todo Backup Free 4.0

When going to a SSD do not forget to check the SSD box.

Good Luck
