Re: SSD drives
Hello again you helpful people. Well I now have the correct bits by way of the SSD adaptor/carrier and the correct size SSD.
I have decided to do a clean install of the O/S onto the SSD followed by my programmes. I am not certain that it will work because, as I mentioned in an earlier post, the copy of Windows 8.0 that I have, may rely on Windows 7 being on the drive in the first place. If it need this I will just have to load 7 on first, followed by 8 and then the download to 8.1.
One question that I have is, when I set about doing this SSD installation, will the new drive (SSD) automatically become my 'C' drive or, do I have to do something myself to reallocate the drive letters.
Presumably when this is done, I can then format the old 'C' drive and use it to store all of my data/folders/files etc. All of this data is currently on an external drive and I would like to get it onto the old 'C' drive in the form that it is now, i.e. with all of the directories/subdirectories/folders and files all visible and then when that is done, to back it all up as a 'backup file' to the external drive. Is this possible please and if so how do I go about doing it. Thank you.
