I have put many VHS videos on to a disc HDD but have acquired a SSD which is larger in capacity but very much smaller in size and needs no AC plug - very nice.

 

If I transfer all those videos from the disc HDD to the SDD will there be any loss of image quality and if so how much if that's possible to say.

 

Thanks for any advice.

Since you are just going to be copying files from one drive to another there should not be any loss of quality at all.

Thanks for responding.

 

I asked this as the quality of the VHS tape images are not that good and didn't want them to get worse. I've now tried the 'Send to' and it seems OK but as I have 1TB of stuff the time needed, I now notice, may just not be worth it.
