Hey peeps, g'day
Finally pulling the trigger and getting a new PC, whilst it's on the way I'd like to get a few things ready.
Have spent way too much time configuring everything to care to reinstall Windows and all the apps from scratch. Current config is a 512GB SSD with 100GB for W10 + apps on C: and remaining partitioned to Z: for all app work files (Lightroom, DaVinci Resolve, Cinema 4D, etc). Then a 4TB spinny HDD for games + downloads + VM + media + whatever on D:
This new PC will have 512GB M.2 which I'll use for boot + apps replacing the existing C: and will partition it for Z: to mirror the current setup, and a 12TB Seagate BarraCuda Pro to replace the aforementiond D:
Now, my Q is, whether if I can just image my current 512 SSD everything will be sweet moving to the M.2 with totally different hardware (thought W10 will have a spaz with new hardware etc?), and if I copy and paste everything from the 4TB HDD over to the 12TB, will everything just work flawlessly? I expect it'll not be this rosey…? If I'm wrong, any particular imaging software that works better than the others?
Thanks heaps :)
