    How do I migrate Windows 8.1 from HDD to SSD ?


    Hello,

    I want to add a SSD next to the existing HDD in my notebook running Windows 8.1 (is possible : I already checked this).

    Now, I would like to know how to migrate the OS, present on the HDD, which I keep in the laptop, to the SSD :
    - use of any software ?
    - different steps to realise an easy and working migration ...

    Thanks in advance for your reaction.
    Best regards.

    Paragon Migrate OS to SSD 4.0.


    Hello,

    Thanks very much for your answer.

    Any experience with the Paragon Migrate OS to SSD 4.0 software : faster ? better ? ....

    Why I ask this : I want to keep in my notebook (= new) the original HDD, with at the moment only Windows 8 and some trial software on it, next to the new SSD (for the OS and later other software) and boot from the SSD.

    Or can I realise this with the by you proposed Paragon software ? If yes, how ?

    Beste regards.
