That's usually easiest...but if they are program installs and such that you don't want to have to resinstall, then it will be more work but you may be able to get around it. You will have to end up with 2 partitions on the larger SSD (SSD2) though.

Do you have an extra hard drive of any type where you can temporarily store backups? An external drive even? If so then something along these lines should work.

Create a backup of SSD2 to your extra hard drive.
Do a quick format of SSD2.
Create 2 partitions on SSD2. First one large enough for your OS. Second one the remaining space.
Clone SSD1 to partition 1 of SSD2.
Restore the backup of SSD2 to partition 2 of SSD2.

Sigh. I'm trying to install 3d max, but something is installing on my C DRIVE, which is my boot drive. I tried changing the regedit so it doesnt but it still does. I don't know whats installing on the c drive, I even changed the direction.

Yes it will work and should boot up just fine too. When your finished you will have to resize the partition to fully use your space.

Resize my partition? Anyone willing to quickly educate me on this lol

YO! Sean! I remember you, oh, you're a big kid on the block now with that giant "storage editor" below your name.
