    Win10 (upgrade from Win7)

    I did the SSD upgrade after upgrading to W10, but it doesn't really matter when you do it.

    I didn't do too much searching : Currys seemed pretty competitive, so I bought a 240GB Sandisk Ultra-II (currently on sale for 54.99) in a package including an external USB caddy.

    Best to use Macrium Reflect to create a backup image of your exisiting drive before you do anything, in case something goes tits-up...

    I then downloaded MiniTool Partition Wizard and shrunk the (right hand) partition size on the HDD so that the disk was slightly smaller than the target SSD size (you can increase the partition size after the install to utilize the whole SSD)

    Then, with the SSD in the external USB caddy, run a Macrium Clone to do a sector-by-sector clone to the SSD.

    When complete, swap the drives over & it should all work seamlessly (and boots up in seconds!) - if you shrunk your partition size as described above, just increase it to the max

    I used tutorials like this to make sure I was doing it right How to Upgrade Your Existing Hard Drive in Under an Hour
