OS mirror to SSD

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, so I installed 2 games that I currently play avidly and I have 21 gb left.

I am now looking to take my OS which is on my main HDD and place it on to my SSD.

I have no desire to reformat so this is what I am resorting to. With that being said, does anyone know any good OS mirroring programs and does anyone know of a guide for mirroring an OS to an SSD?


Thanks biggrin.gif

This would be a way to do it:

...but then you just have to enable by hand everything that 7 does by itself when it's installed directly on the SSD. The advice that I'd give anyone is to do a fresh install on the SSD and maybe use "Easy transfer" to get your files form the HDD installation to the new SSD installation as there are may ways a cloning process could go wrong.
