Windows 8 Migrate to new drive ?

2 posts in this topic

OK just bought a new SSD as mine was low on space so got a nice new Vertex4 512GB - happy.

Thought might as well install windows 8 on it so had to do a clean install as no room on primary C drive.

Installed a breeze. Now got my windows 7 SSD on a USB caddy.

HOW can I get it to migrate all the settings and programs etc to the new SSD ?

Can it be done. Microsoft bang on about the easy transfer etc and the upgrade in place. Is it as easy.

On a mac I just point the migration assistant to the old drive and it does everything.

Not finding this as easy as Ithought they had made it.

I would like apps and data to be moved.

Ideas welcome as bit of googling didnt find the exact answer I was looking for.

Never mind doesnt realyl do it.

I was goin gfrom a 128GB SSD to a 512SSD so just used ease US - It made a sector copy and thats it done. Then expanded partition with partition magic then installed windows 8 in place.

Sorted now./
