    Intel Migration to s larger SSD

    I initially migrated Win8 on an HDD to a 40G Intel SSD using Inel's Migration Softwarre and them removed the system from the HDD to gain some need storage space. I now want to move to a 120G. I then installed the Migration Software on the 40G SDD and tried to migrate to the 120G. But, Intel's Migration Software will not let me select the 40G disk as the source. It is greyed out and the only one showing as selectable as a source is the 120G one. That is the one I want to be the target. I have the feeling that the software will not migrate from an SSD to an HDD.

    Anyone have any thought on this?

    Thank you.

    You could do it with an image or the Paragon Migration Tool: SSD - Install and transfer the Operating System - Windows 7 Forums

    You can do the same with the FREE version of Macrium Reflect -- just choose the option to CLONE the drive.

    After you reboot, you can then use Disk Management to expand the partition to fill the new SSD, or (my choice), just create another new NTFS partition to fill the rest of the SSD.

    I migrated using clone feature in aomei data backuper today at work and it worked, resized during clone. Easy as can be. It's free.

Hello, First post. I'm trying to find a way to make icons of images in Explorer larger than the "extra large" option. I don't see the slider in Win 8 Explorer to do that. Is there something else that could be done to size the icons to what I want them to be? Thx!
