    Hi. I want to install an SSD instead of my own HDD. can I use this method to recover my windows onto the new SSD? or I have to install the whole windows with the product ID I see in System in control panel? (sorry for my bad English)

    If you are asking if you can clone your windows to your new SSD then you can use a program called MiniTool Partition Wizard 9.0 or 9.1 Its a free program. I think you would have to make an ISO file of MiniTool and boot it from your DVD to clone your old hard drive to your new SSD. Hope this helps you a little more.

    Best place is right off their site. I will give you the link for the ISO version. just d/l it and burn it to your dvd. This is also a GREAT partition manger too. Will move, expand, delete partitions with no problem. Always BACK UP 1st.

    Mike: OK, fine, and I just downloaded it from that link - URL that you sent me..., and will be reading about it. I'm sure glad I have only 2 months months to work as I really enjoy seeing, reading, doing and learning about Win 10. All this is a good deal
    Thanks, and more later.. Cliff M.

    Thanks so much for all your assistance and pointing me in this direction. I do not know a lot about partitions, and or making them different sizes, so I will learn from this action.

    I need to learn more about how you did your closing job to ssd with the Partition Wizard program, and will be checking it out for that info.... Can you do that with the FREE Version of it ?

    I am a 39 model and hopefully have several more years to do Win 10 and many other things. All be safe.. Cliff M.

    Yes the free version will clone drives. at least two ways to clone, 1 have your new HD installed in your computer and working. 2nd option is an external device that you can place your HD into, they use a usb port. Like BlacX 5g box. I call it my pop-up-toaster.
    It just like a toaster, except you put in your ssd or hard drive into it. BUT MAKE A BACKUP of your OS 1st.

    I have a 16 GB USB drive inserted and I'm trying to make a recovery drive, but my computer tells me that I need a 32 GB to do the recovery. I need help understanding why when 16 should be sufficient for the Recovery Drive.
