Hello

I am wanting to upgrade my hdd to an ssd. The hdd is 1TB and when I first set up I partitioned it so that the c:drive has 150GB and the rest went to E:drive which is 781gb. I also have another 1TB hdd but that shouldn't cause any complications.

I have a 240gb Crucial M500 that I want to install. I'm just abit confused how I should install it. Should I clone the current c:drive to the ssd? if I do that will I have to delete or format the hdd c:drive afterwards? I don't want to affect the E:drive as I have some media related stuff there as well as games installed.

Or if I want to do a fresh install of Windows 7 to the SSD will I have to delete the hdd c:drive first so that windows is not there?

Also just to check but my skydrive and dropbox files should not be affected should they as they are on the c:drive and I wouldn't want them to disappear.

I would unplug the hard drives and install your SSD then put a fresh image of Windows on there.

Then you can connect your hard drives and move data from the drive to the SSD.
