No recommendations but just use any good cloning software to copy old disk.

I did this about a year ago with EaseUS backup utilities and it worked very well. Except that my Windows 10 refuses to update successfully. My last successful Win 10 update was in early April of 2019, about 30 days after I migrated to the larger system drive.  I have tried everything imaginable without success.  I also replaced my video card an the nVidia driver update process fails.  My nVidia driver is vintage October 2019.  My system is 5 years old now.  I plan a new system when either P3Dv5 shakes out or when "more mature" specs are available for MSFS 2020.  Want that process to get past Alpha, into Beta, and based on the core product plus typical GA add-ons.
