That should work. For example, if the 250GB drive is E:, and the new 500GB drive shows up as F:, just copy everything over from E: to F: and then change the letters around using Disk Management.

 

If the 250GB SSD is also your boot drive (C: ), the above won't work and you'll have to use clone/imaging software.

Thanks. That sounds wonderful. Prepared on its own drive. Actually spread over two other drivers... Let's just say not your father's flight sim any more

 

Appreciate the help
