Migrating Windows 7 OS from one disk to another
Posted on 2013-02-03
I have Windows 7 Pro OS on 1.5 TB sata disk.
Now I want to buy SSD disk about 120 GB only to host my OS and some new programs I will install.
- The idea is to copy only Windows related stuff and make it bood on new disk SSD which will be new partition C. I know which folders are important, but will it work if I just copy them by hand? I can clone it because its smaller disk. What must I watch out?
- All other stuff installed on my current 1.5TB disk will become partition D, so I need some easy ways that registery related options will know not to look on partition C but on D. So this way I dont need to install anything from scratch.
I know its better to install fresh OS on SSD but I just dont have time right now and I need quick solution for this.
Thanks and regards,
