Using Macrium Reflect, copy the partitions from the old SSD to the new SSD. When you do it, on the new SSD, resize the partion for C so it uses the extra free space. It may take a little fiddling.

Once the copy is done your system should work as you want. Test it.


DO NOT sell the old SSD on trademe until you have wiped it.
DO NOT wipe the old SSD until you are certain the new one is working as expected.

you don't want to primarily copy partitions, you want to primarily clone the disk.





Swype on iOS is detrimental to accurate typing. Apologies in advance.
