    Cloning requires the SSD to be the same as or larger than the internal disk.

    Your SSD is larger than your internal disk- right?

    To be precise, cloning is an exact copy.

    However you can downsize partitions with MR and make a copy. If you search for
    clone to a smaller disk macrium
    you can find articles.
    E.g.

    Why does the disk size matter? Whatever is on the existing drive to copy over is nowhere near the 250GB of the SSD...

    If this person does not benefit from GPT is there any point converting?

    Edit: The drive may already be in GPT anyway... Will need to check.
    No, there is no point and there is no speed gain using GPT, I always use MBR for my OS drive, because I only want 1 partition for windows.

    So much easier to image, and that`s just the way I prefer it.

    Hi,
    Post a free mini tool disk screen shot just like addram did

    Best Free Partition Manager for Windows | MiniTool Partition Wizard Free

    If the hdd or original disk is bigger than the new ssd
    Simply open reflect and use the option to Create image of all partitions needed to boot and back up windows.

    If you need to reduce C partition you can use free mini tool to do that easily enough to resize it.
