Now I'll be able to crash 10 times faster!

Amazon just delivered to me a 2 TB SSD. I'm of two minds on how to migrate. I have on old 2 TB hard drive that I used as a test, installing the OS clean on it to see if that would reduce crashing during WOWS battles (Mostly successful) or my main boot HD which naturally has all my stuff on it, but I guess has a dirty system.

Makes me wonder how I can cross the streams. But I know that things like the Registry, and file ownership will rear their ugly heads. (At least once I've had to take over a whole drive's worth of files.)  Ah, the days of pre-OSX Macintosh, where you could change the system folder just by telling the machine which one to boot from, and you could drag and drop the OS anywhere....

And then I might even look at going Windows 10. Maybe.

And I think this post has pushed all of my comments off the front page.

1 For now I've just cloned the 2 TB drive, since it has the cleaner windows install on it.

The last time I migrated files between OS installs though, I ran into issues where the account ownership wasn't the same, even with the same account name, and that required messy permission editing.
