    How do I transfer my Win7 operating system & programs to my new (Kingston) SSD?
    What is with the 4k drive alignment talk I hear of?

    I have a 12.3 gig Paragon Backup And Restore Image of C:

    The complete system is just under 18gig, without My Documents, and Desktop.
    The Kingston SSD is 30 gig.

    Documents and Desktop stay on their own SATA HDD, currently 250 gig Samsung.
    The plan is to utilize the current 500 gig Barracuda boot drive for these.

    Thanks.

    Tutorial ... The desktop stays in the SSD system ... Data that's normally in My Docs could go to the HDD in a Data partition ..
    I'd use Acronis and recover from the Image or Clone my OS to the SSD

    Another SSD Tweak Tutorial
    I'm thinking 30Gig is too small for W7 .. I've been looking at a 120gig SSD
    I have a 64Gig SSD in my XP system and it's too small for W7

    Thanks for the Tutorial link and I am working my way through the information. By the time the drive arrives I should no what I am doing. I followed the recommendation there and purchased mini tool partition wizard pro. Re size, it is small at 30gig but as I say my boot patition is under 19gig. It is not that long ago that an entire magazine was devoted to the exploits of enthusiasts using a computers with 20k of ram and no hard drive. I speak of the Vic 20.

    Firstly I do feel foolish answering my own post:eek:

    Secondly the 30gig Kingston could not be sourced:cool:

    I have settled on a 60gig OCZ Vertex which definitely will allow for both my desktop and swap file on the boot drive with room to spare:)

    Speaking of swap file do I really need one now anyway?
    I have never seen more than half used of the 4gig installed:confused:
