    Win10 Pro 64

    Friend I always help out and get parts from built me this box for win 10 with a 120 gig ssd, tiny, quiet, and fast. We added a 500 gig HD to hold all my data that doesn't need to load super fast and I try to keep non critical large files to the 500, like my video captures seeing how I just added Media center to it, the hacked 8.1 version I think. Works fine with a little tweaking so far.
    I transferred over some of my drives from my win7 box and just left the critical 500 gig server grade boot drive and the few that most of the extra programs are tied into. Been running WMC on that box for years so left it in place to continue that task till I figured out if WMC will work and be stable on the new build.
    So for now I have 4 HD's mostly 500 gig, one new one, the rest from the old box with their files intact, smallest is a 320. I have several large external USB drives mapped onto the network, and some of the drives from the other box are mapped and shared as well so lots of storage online.
    Been slowly figuring out network and driver issues and tweaking things the way I want but yep, once it's past the POST screen stuff 10 comes up real fast with the ssd. Hoping to eventually get a bigger one so some of the programs I use a lot can live on it but so far with the OS and some of my favorite programs it's got 79 gig free of 118.
    The new 500 data drive holds my recorded TV folder and the bigger stuff and still has 455 free of 465 that will float up and down as stuff gets recorded then edited and transferred to the really gig externals I use, then I use Plex and a Android Media player to watch things as I feel like it no matter which box originally captured it. Keep watching for deals and jump in when you see the size and price that makes you happy.

    Forget the migration software. It is a no-brainer to move the OS and files.

    But you can of course spend $20 and go with this. Then you go in comfort - with 3 clicks.

I'm afraid something will go wrong and not knowing what to do about it, if there is anything other than starting all over again or just installing a fresh Win 10 and then coping files to a USB and transferring them. Do all of the SSD's come with migration software or do you have to by it? And how reliable is it?
    1st thing anyone should do is make a Complete Image Backup of their C-Drive, before doing anything!! Then if you mess something up, you have a backup to restore your OS. Your image backup should be stored on a 2nd drive. The process for moving all your files from one hard drive or to a SSD are not difficult at all. You actually could use a program like Macrium Reflect to make your image backup, and use the same program to put that image on your New SSD.

    Is this a good buy or is it an over-kill for my laptop and a not-so-sophisticated user like me ?

    That's an OK SSD. A tad expensive though.
