    Tips for migrating from SSD back to HDD.

    Firstly I know this a "bass awkward" move but I have to make it for my warranty to still be valid. Ok i have a dell inspiron 3650 and I have a crucial 525Gb SSD installed but I must go back to my original HDD(which I have been using as storage). I would like to know if there is anything I need to do to make it a smooth transition. Going from HDD to SSD wasnt bad but I dont know anything about revering back. Any advice will be appreciated. Thanks.

    And if you do, make image backup of ssd using Macrium Reflect Free (or paid versions) and restore appropriate partitions using drag and drop.
