Windows 7: SSD - Install and Transfer the Operating System

Michael, the German cars (all makes) are about 35% cheaper in Florida than in Germany. In Germany they have about the highest prices. That's why many people buy reimports.

Lexus is nice, but that is too much car for me. I used to have an Acura Legend Coupe. But that was hardly used because of lack of trunk space. After 5 years it had 27.000 KM. We always used our Renault Kangoo (with special ergonomic seats)which had a lot of space.

And now I also need a car that the wife can drive because my eyesight at night is very bad. And she does not like big cars. She would want a Renault Twingo, but that is too uncomfortable. A Citroen C5 would be nice. But that is too bulky. One of my best cars was a Citroen CX Prestige. That was super comfortable. But times change.

Hum well I think your first comment goes for the rest of the world except for Australia too Wolfgang. Look at any news program and one sees Mercs hauling everyone around.

Hum well if I can find what or where the mess is yes that would be very kind of you Wolfgang.
Am just doing a backup right now and a clone to make sure I have two copies of the SSD. Otherwise I can just reinstall the OS and start over and just copy back from the clone or backup images what I want in the way of the necessaries like security if that is a possibility. It's no problem and I suppose if I do that it means I can start with a clean slate so to speak.

Well sort of all over the place I'm afraid there is a heap in the old HDD's (I used to clone from one to the other) and some building up of course in the SSD.

Can you make a seperate partition on the HDD and move it all to there. Just make new folders of Documents, Pictures, Music, Videos and move the data into the respective folders - from wherever it is. When you are done, you INCLUDE (right click on each folder) the top folders into the respective libraries on the SSD.

DO NOT move default locations with the location tab in properties. That can be messy.

Ok I'll shut down hook up the HDD and try as the machine is running very strangely and slowly too.

But first I am going to read the partitioning tut again as I don't want to muck up the HDD as well.

No go Wolfgang I hooked the HDD up and it keeps booting to it and it takes forever.

I might just check once more in the BIOS and if it keeps it up then I shall have to reinstall 7 onto the SSD after cleaning it.

If it takes this then it is no big deal as I would sooner start afresh and FOLLOW your tutorial properly this time. My fault for being in such a hell of a rush to do it
