How To Migrate your OS to an SSD

We see this question asked often in tech and gaming pages and I think this is the simplest way to do it. Let me introduce you to one of my favorite utility programs, the MiniTool Partition Wizard.The Partition Wizard is another one of those disk partitioning tools but it comes packed with features like Migration to SSD. You can also make a bootable USB partition wizard if should you need it, but for this guide, you won’t need it to be bootable.Take note though: Migration process with Partition Wizard will destroy all data in your target disk, so it’s wise to make a backup in advance. It won’t have any effect on the data in the original disk though
