Windows 7: Upgrade from Vista to Win7 AND install new SSD vs HDD at same time?

02 Apr 2012   #11

Win 7

AddRAM - it isn't about sharing PCs. We have more than one. I thought I'd try to be a good husband and upgrade her PC so she does't complain about it running so slow.

She's just such a technophobe that she doesn't want to use online email of any kind. Upgrading to Win 7 Home through a fresh install on the new SSD ought to be easy, I'm just a bit concerned about not having all the old emails show up in Win 7. They'll still be on the old HDD, but I'm not sure if I need to import them or just somehow link Windows Mail to them.

I'll probably not get the chance to do any of this until Friday when I have the day off. Thanks to all for your advice.

Did you google to see how it is done? Then you wouldn't have to be concerned.

This is what I found when I asked Google: How to Import Mail and Account Settings from Outlook Express in Windows Live Mail - About Email

Well then my question to you would be...
Why is it running so slow ? What`s the cpu, is the memory maxd out, do have a good video card installed ? Do you defragment often, use disk cleanup ?
