Hard Drive Swap

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey Guys!

I'm getting a hard drive upgrade...I just purchased a 500GB Hybrid SSD. Right now I have a 79Gb piece of crap. I was curious if there was a easy way to take all my data from one hard drive and basically paste it on another (perhaps with a cloning program), any recommended programs? or a easy way of doing it?

Edit: Scratch that, for SSD you will need to do a fresh install of Windows.

Oh and btw, only 4GB of it is SSD...The SSD part learns when what program parts you use the most and puts that info onto the SSD for quick access.
