I have done some searching and have not found what I am looking for.
I have a SSD for WIN 7 in my HTPC ("old drive"). I just bought a bigger one that I want to use instead ("new drive"). I understand that I can use win 7 to make an image file of the old drive, and use that to rebuild everything on the new drive.
My question is: Can I plug in the new drive in addition to the old, do the windows backup (image creation) of the old drive and use the new drive as the storage location for the image file, then unplug the old drive and "boot" from the new one? I am sure it isn't quite that easy, but what am I missing?
My issue is that I don't have an external HDD that is as big as the "old" SSD.
