copy C drive to larger SSD

I built new rig with all SSD Samsung EVO 840. C drive 500gb and data 1tb . I will get win 10 7/29 I think and I want to dual boot Win 7 and Win 10. But my C drive is SSD 500gb with 132gb unused and I don't think that is enough. Can I copy my C Drive from a 500gb SSD to a 1tb (non Op sys) SSD.

In a way, yes. You can't do a copy and paste with system files (OS and programs). However, you can clone from one drive to another drive or even to a partition on another drive using a program like Macrium Reflect Free. You could also make an image of your C: drive and restore from the image to the new drive but you would need to have another drive to put the image on.
