    Image restore on larger SSD


    Is it possible to restore a Windows 10 system image taken from a 60Gb SSD to a new 240gb SSD on the same computer?
    I am thinking of using the windows 10 installation USB to boot then repair to recover the image onto the 240Gb SSD.
    Would this work? Does partition size affect the new 240Gb SSD?
    The system is already licenced for Windows 10 and nothing has changed other than the SSD volume size..

    Any clues, tips or guidance on this..

    The VERY last resort is to install over again with all programs, tweaks, etc..but, I'd rather not.

    There should be no difficulty doing that. You will end up with 180GB of unallocated space. That you can use to extend the C partition or make another partition. Just make sure the bootmgr is also transferred. If nothing else, first copy the bootmgr to C.

    Cool, thanks. <great news>
    So I could then just use Windows 10 disk manager to modify the size of the unallocated/ allocated space to my choosing once the Bootmgr is in place then?

    Yes, extend the C partition with disk management.
