SSD to HDD with 3 Primary, 2 logical Partions Win 7 & 10 Tech Preview



Don't know how to approach this. Not using Win 10 that much and as it will be free to upgrade, so I can easily get rid now. I have a big 1.5 TB external USB 3 HDD, so how do I retain all settings,files, programs and customisations from the Win 7 partition for a seamless transition to using SSD.
Probably this SSD Crucial BX100 250GB SATA 6Gb/s 2.5" Internal SSD

Thanks

Can you post a bigger image than that? It's impossible to see the used space on each disk without straining my eyes.

My first thought would be with imaging with Macrium.

That stuff should fit on the SSD - it is less than 160GB in total. I would just clone it to the SSD. I also recommend free Macrium for that.

The windows partition and system reserved partition has to be smaller then the ssd you intend to put it on, it has to fit. If you use an image.

Wolfgang`s idea of cloning should work perfectly.
