Migraying FSX to A SSD

Recommended Posts

Gents,

 

I currently have a Western Digital 2 TB Blue Drive (C:/) with Windows, FSX, and all the other good stuff installed. I also have Seagate 1TB HDD (D:/) for Documents and pictures and what not. My question is, can I buy a Samsung 850 Pro 512GB/1TB (Top of the line) SSD and migrate my C drive onto it. Thus keeping everything the same including my windows desktop and all the programs. I will then rename the original C drive as E and keep the SSD as C(Boot), WD drive as E(I will clear it once the migration is done and everthng looks fine so I can store pictures on it), and the Seagate as D. From what I see, this plan should technically work the way I want it but migrating programs can sometimes have a few glitches. I dont really want to do a reinstall full because I cannot describe the quantity of addons I have. They number in the hundreds, and there are tweaks too that I have already forgotten. It would take a month of painstaking work for a reinstall. I dont even have some of the download links so I'd have to contact the seller with the product keys and get them refreshed. I hope there are some here who have done this succesfully. So. After that spiel. What are your opinions?
