Windows 7: HDD Raid 0 to SSD help

HDD Raid 0 to SSD help

Edit: New to forums! I am going to post in installation & setup since i think that is more appropriate.

Hey guys! Happy new year!

I was wondering what would be the best way to setup my new SSD?

Ive never had to swap from big to small so im looking for a little help to point me in the right direction. Currently im using 1tb raid 0 HDD and decided to upgrade to a Samsung 128gb SSD. I know that the easiest way to go about this would be to create a system image, do a clean install of W7 on my SSD, and to restore the image to my new SSD but i cannot seem to shrink my image or my C: partition under 250gb or so.

Any tips or things i should delete so that i can make my partition or image smaller for my new SSD?

Ive looked everywhere online and cant seem to figure this out lol.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Thank you

Windows10 Pro - 64Bit vs.10547

are you saying that you don't have Windows7 on an installation disk..?

ie. that the machine came with Windows7 pre-installed..??
