Cloning Windows 7 on SSD to a larger SSD help needed

Hi,

This is my first post, and I'm not very experienced with SSD's.

I see tutorials about alignment when cloning from an HDD to an SSD, but haven't found info about SSD to SSD cloning, so I'd appreciate some advice.

I originally did a fresh install of Windows 7 onto an SSD, which has now become too small. Using the Windows 7 utility today I created a system image onto an external standard hard drive. I'd like to restore the image onto my new, larger SSD. Is preparation such as alignment needed, or does going from one SSD to another take care of that? Anything else I need to know? I'm assuming I can resize the active partition using Disk Management afterwards.

Thanks for your help,
Michael
