    Install Win 10 Pro on new 250 GB SSD

    Want install Win 10 Pro on new 250 GB SSD drive. Already have Win 10 Pro installed and working on a 500 GB drive. Have bootable Win 10 on usb created with the windows tool. Now for the questions

    1. I will disconnect all drives except for the new SSD, and try the install on it. If all goes to hell, by just reconnecting the original Win 10 drive will I be good to start over?

    2. OneDrive, I have about 70 gb of data there, I do not want to download all this to my PC. I Have OneDrive backed up to an external drive would it be a simple matter of copying this to the new OneDrive on SSD.

    Thanks for taking the time to read this. I would really appreciate you’re thoughts on the above strategy and possibly a new one.

    You might want to re-partition your old drive because you will have a lot of wasted space on it.
