I have a 64 gig SSD hard drive that is simply too small at this point.  This drive is running my OS and whatever else has made it's way to this drive. I want to create an exact image of this drive and put it onto a larger SSD drive and just swap them out.  What is the best way to achieve this..

You want to swap the hard drives after putting the image of the first hard disk into the bigger disk..this means you want to clone the hard drive. There are different tools available to clone the hard drive. You can either clone the drive or create an image. Though both sounds similar but both are different .. Norton ghost works perfect for cloning or image. Follow the below link to find the steps for cloning::
