Help migrating HD with new SSD.

Recommended Posts

I just installed a Samsung 850 EVO, 500GB. The Hard drive I am switching over from is a 1TB. In migrating the HD over I need to exclude a bunch of files to keep it under the size of the SSD. Once I do this it says I will lose the files I exclude unless I move them to another drive, which I do not have. Is my 1TB being wiped in the process? I would like to leave them on the current drive so I do not lose any files at all. Is this possible, and if so how?

 

My goal is to use the 1TB for storage and perhaps store files on both Hard Drives that I can't handle losing if a HD goes bad.

Why not just reinstall the operating system on the new drive then and keep everything on the old one as it is?

 

[edit:] That would mean reinstalling your old programs, maybe not the best option for you.

You can't normally mirror from a larger drive to a smaller one without reducing the partition size to match. The best thing to do would be to reinstall.

It is possible to clone a larger disk to a smaller one, provided that the smaller hard disk has enough capacity to fit the contents of the larger disk. Get something like Acronis True Image, boot from usb and use the clone option.

 

edit:

You can also try windows backup and make a complete system image and then try to restore it from the recovery console on your windows disk (or recovery disk, not sure).
