Hey guys, at PAX australia i won a 120GB intel SSD 330 series. Currently my windows is installed on a 1TB HDD and my computer has another 2 HDDS used for other stuff like videos games, recordings etc.
The problem is while i want a clean install on my SSD i also dont want to go through the hassle of reinstalling all my games that dont use steam just because i have a fresh OS. Also add to the fact that the SSD will also take the letter drive C:\ where my HDD is now and the other HDDS already have letters E:\ and F:\ and if i were to change their letter name it would probably screw up with my programs because they were installed on those letters before the change.
So my questions are:
1. How could i transfer just the CORE parts of windows 7, registry, profiles etc so i dont use up all the 120gb on the SSD?
2. How can i do this without having to reinstall every game that doesnt use steam?
3. How can i rename the letters of the other HDD's without screwing up the programs.
4. I've also been looking up some stuff on SSD's like trimming and the need to disable defrag to increase life and efficiency of SSD. Is this true?
