Restoring exact image of Windows and Installed Programs from current HDD to SSD
I've ordered one of the plextor SSD from MSY - want to use this as my desktop's primary disc.
Now I want to get the exact image of my current Windows from my HDD's C drive to the SSD including all installed programs (i.e. excat image of my C drive).
Whats the best (easies and safest) way to perform this? Just usual Windows backup/restore or its better to use a thrid party app like norton ghost?
I'm bit worried about the installed softwares and their current settings which I want to keep… don't want to manually install and re-configure them again…
I'm using Windows 7 64bit
Thanks for your help
