I just got a new SSD to use as a back up drive for my system drive. I have Image for Windows on the computer to back it up. It has been a long time since I have done this and I have forgotten what I need to do to Set up the Drive.

You need to either connect it internally or via usb adapter or caddy and format the SSD using disk management https://www.partitionwizard.com/part...ormat-ssd.html then follow the steps in the previous link.
