So I have windows 8 installed with my WD Black 1tb right now. But I was thinking of getting a SSD for a boot drive. Will I have to buy another code?

You shouldn't have to, I re-installed on the same machine a few times now with different drives and it worked fine.

I would just copy the partition to the SSD assuming you already have AHCI turned on. No need to reinstall. If you are using the whole 1TB for windows you will need to first shrink the partition down to fit the SSD.

It seems that every round of patches for Win 8 ends up causing 1GB+ of disk space to be swallowed. I'm up to 16.2GB of usage on C: with only 1GB or so of applications installed, page file moved elsewhere and hibernation turned off. To think I had it under 10GB initially... my SSD will be filled in a few months at this rate frown.gif

After updates are installed go to C:\Windows\Software Distribution\Download\ and delete everything in there. Windows likes to keep large winupdate files even after they're installed.

That directory is nearly 600MB, but moving or removing it won't reclaim whatever disk space the decompressed and applied patches consume (obviously).
