    Since you want to go to a larger ssd, the way I would do it would be to clone your current ssd with Win 7 and all your programs to a new, larger ssd. Once that was in working order, I would then do the upgrade to Win 10 would would keep all of your installed programs in tact.

    With a clean install you will need to reinstall all of your programs.
    Sorry to confuse you. My computer terminology & skills are lacking.

    I assume the W10 install disk will search for the presents of an up-gradable OS like W7, W8, etc. Otherwise M$ will want a fee.

    I said, "Save W7 data as an ISO" when I should of said clone W7, as you did.

    I wont need a new SSD if W10 upgrade properly over W7 & keep my software intact.

    A SSD Price Question for the forum family:

    Is it likely that SSD prices will come down further? My "Windows Experience" index and other tests point out my 1 Terabyte Western Digital Caviar Green (2009) hard drive as the weak link in my system. In task manager, it loves to peg at 100%, even while RAM and CPU barely budge.

    I'd love to keep it simple by cloning my entire hard drive over to a 1 TB SSD drive. But those with the best user ratings are running just over $360 at Best Buy. Too much. Any feelings on where prices are headed for the 1TB SSD drives?

    I'm only using 610GB of the hard I could probably get by with a smaller capacity SSD, but that's my second option...if the 1 TB SSD prices don't come down by 40%-50% by Christmas. Thanks in advance to those of you who respond.

    p.s. Wow.. I see one at the Best Buy website for $10,763.10! It's an HP ioDrive2 drive. Who would need that???
