    I am installing a new SSD drive in my pc. Currently I have my system on an SSD drive of the same size. Will I need to format my new SSD drive prior to restoring the system? Thanks.

    Not necessarily, but a full format can help detect and possibly correct errors, making the transfer safer and more pain-free.

    Not for an SSD.

    If you're doing a full backup/restore or cloning, all that is taken care of. Use the "verify" option if your software has it.
