Windows 8.1 and SSD question

Recommended Posts

Hi, I just bought a fresh cheap 120GB SSD which I already installed Windows in it, when suddenly had the urge to buy a really affordable 250GB SSD (need the extra storage for Uni) which I have paid and received.  Is there steps that I could format the 120GB SSD and replace and install Windows in the 250GB SSD in a safer easier way? 

Its my first time building PC, Thanks!

It's pretty simple to copy from a smaller partition to a larger one. Something simple like "dd" in Linux from the smaller drive to the larger drive will work. Then, you just expand the partition on the larger drive once you have it booted up into Windows.

 

Just don't run the copy the wrong way. You only do it once, but it's a very painful lesson that will stick around forever. :lol:

Don't agree Waco, the op says it's his first time building a pc so using Linux could lead to disaster very easily. I would advise using Macrium Reflect Free, simple to use and free to download.
