Hi, Im building a PC and a lot of people have recommended a SSD drive for faster bootup time. At the moment my budget can not afford this but I can upgrade in the future. If I installed windows 10 to my HD drive and then got a SSD drive (Id still keep the HD one) is it possible to transfer windows 10 to the SSD?
It's not simple if the SSD is smaller than the HD.
If you plan on doing this, install your HDD with 2 partitions. A 100gb drive that you install Windows on, and 900GB drive for "everything else". Reason is it's easier to move a small partition to a larger one. So you can clone your 100gb C drive to a 120-240 gb SSD, then expand the partition to use the whole SSD. Once that's working you can use utilities to remove the old C drive partition, and add the space to your D drive.
Or, just reinstall windows etc on the SSD. It's often simpler.
Reputable SSD manufacturers have a free download and use of there SSD migration (clone) software ..
( The free software is not universal and only works with one of there drives !)
Western digital , Sea Gate etc .
Yes it is. Use Seagate's free software. See link
You can buy external enclosure with software to clone your HD. I got one from Best Buy a year or so ago.
