Yes, I mistakenly thought that a 32GB SSD would be sufficient for Win 7 Pro... as long as I didn't install any other programs, and forgot about the consequences of "Typical" installation instead of "Custom." Since my initial post, I've had a couple of discussions with my program vendors, telling me that Windows 8 is NOT
a good choice for a business machine installation. They are calling Win8, even Win8Pro, a toy instead of a business application! Obviously, they're not very high in M$oft's latest offering, at least for the business world, so I think I'll stick with Win7Pro for this particular re-make.
I also discovered that I couldn't clone the 32GB SSD onto the 120GB SSD with a paid version of Acronis' TrueImage or with DirectXML, either... same error messages, so I guess I'm stuck with copying whatever essential files I can find onto the new drive. I won't worry about reinstalling programs, since they are all installed on a different HDD and are working. I'm a bit concerned about what all this maneuvering will do to my registry, though...
Btw, founded in 2002 in San Jose, California, OCZ Technology Group, Inc. has been in the memory business for quite some time.
