Thank you, ***** ***** is downloading now. If I move the OS to the new SSD Drive E:, will Drive C: (the OS) become a sub-folder of E: or will Acronis just delete everything, including the existing drive letter?
Its a laptop. So, should I back up to the new SSD, or to a different external drive? And once that's done and the CD created, do I then remove the existing HDD and replace it with the SSD - bearing in mind it's currently Drive E:?
Thank you. Backing up to another external drive now - which will take some time, I guess.
When I put the new SSD into the computer, will the first partition automatically be renamed C: instead of E: as it will then be the only internal drive?
Thanks. I'll get back to you tomorrow and let you know how it went!
Acronis now tells me that Disk Cloning is not available in trial mode. Any further ideas?
It appeared that the Acronis Backup/Restore option was going to be too complicated for me (I'm not a computer expert!). I managed to track down a Samsung SSD professional (in Holland) who was able to talk me through the software. Result - the computer is now running from the SSD and it's an amazing transformation.
However, thank you for your time and patience.
