I see that, but that erases all my data. Didn't you mention a way to take an image of the old HD and then apply that image to the new one?

And that will allow me to make an image of my C: drive, install a larger SSD drive as a C: and then copy the image and all is good?
But I got this message when clicking on those links:
Secure Connection Failed

I suggest you post a full screen screenshot of your c drive using spacesniffer. I bet there's a lot of space you can delete or move and having a picture of your c drive will tell us your situation

SpaceSniffer download

here's an example of what your c drive may look like

hiberfil.sys is taking up 12GB. Disabling hibernation will eliminate it. Really do not need hibernation on a desktop machine.

Hibernate - Enable or Disable - Windows 7 Help Forums

or just do start > run > cmd > powercfg.exe -h off

once hibernation is disabled, hiberfil.sys should be gone upon reboot. If not, you can just delete it within spacesniffer by hitting right-click>delete

nvidia stuff is taking up 6GB. Check this out..

suggest you click on the 34.6GB PETER to see what is underneath it, and post a screenshot of that detail.
