1: Should I mirror my Windows 7 SP1 Home Premium install or create an image of current 1TB 7200 RPM Hitachi HDD (55.7GB used), to the 250GB Samsung 850 EVO I plan to buy soon?
2: Is it true that in order to image a 1TB HDD, the other storage device must be of the same capacity even though not all 1TB is used?
3: Since I plan to reuse that SSD in a new build in a couple months with a SATA III cable, will that same cable work with my current motherboard's SATA II ports?
4: What reputable S.M.A.R.T software can I used to check the health & estimated life remaining of my current HDD?
5: My PSU is a TurboLink ATX-TL 500W-BK 12V, is it risky installing a new SSD in a system with that cheap of a PSU who's warranty is expired?
Other system specs: Athlon X2 260, Radeon HD 6450, 4GB DDR3.
