    Clean install on new SSD

    Hello Everyone, I intend to buy a new SSD in the coming weeks, not sure if its a Samsung Evo 250, or 500 GB drive, To install windows 10, I plan to do a Fresh Clean install of windows 10 on the new SSD,

    I have seen so many ways on this Forum, on the best way to do a Clean install of windows 10. I plan on doing it by installing a fresh clean 10 on the new SSD , and then migrating the DATA from my old 120G SSD to the new 250 or 500G SSD

    is this the best way to go, or is there a better Option.

    Thanks in Advance.

    yes, you can do a clean install on the new SSD on C drive. Then transfer all the data and applications along with settings to the new SSD. In this way, you don't have to reinstall the programs. For this, you can use PC mover or easeus todo pctransfer.

    Also you can upgrade to Win 10 directly from the old SSD, and then copy the whole thing to the new SSD.

    Thanks for all the Suggestions, i would prefer to do the Fresh Clean install Method, and then transfer all the Data from the old SSD to the new SSD,

    I can also go this Route also ?
