    Can I refresh Windows, and then have the new install on a separate dri


    HI all, So what I'm planning to do is upgrade my rig with an SSD, but I don't really want to lose my files. Is there a way to refresh Windows, and have the "refreshed" install and my files on a separate drive than what Windows was originally installed on?

    No you can't do exactly that.

    You can however transfer your data over to the new drive. It's pretty simple of a procedure.

    Do you want to do that?
