    I purchased a 250gb Samsung Pro to upgrade from my Kingston 120gb SSD. It was on sale at neweeg the other day and was the lowest I've seen it. More an obsessive purchase than need! I didn't have a USB - SATA adapter for the transfer and it won't be here for a few days yet. I haven't viewed the CD yet either, which may answer my question but as always, I have stopped here first. My C: has no other partitions. My system, programs and documents are on it but backups are on other drives.
    So my question: After I run the program and then install the Samsung, will it be recognized as my new C: and then just format the old drive as (whatever:) and begin using it for backup! Thank you!

    Ratchet, if you have imaging software (I think you do), why not just restore a recent image to your new SSD.

    Thank you for the response Frog! Actually, owning Refect v6, I was going to ask, "Should I just clone C: and do it that way, skipping the $14 dollar adapter?" but then figured Samsung woudl have this down!

    Well... Reflect has it down as well and cloning isn't necessary... a simple image and restore will work just fine.

    The samsung data migration software is cake. It is setup in a fashion where you just hit next, next, next, it clones and shuts down the PC.
