I now have 2: Western Digital Black WD5002AALX 500GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" One is basically empty and the other has Windows 7 and everything else on that drive. I want to upgrade to a SSD and install Windows 10 home. So I want to end up with 1 SSD and 1 HDD . What is the best way to go about this? Which HDD should I remove? I do not want or need Windows 7 but I do want all the data that is on that HDD.
Should I backup all the data I want to keep then replace the Windows 7 HDD with the SSD windows 10? Then download the data I backed up? Or can I just keep the HDD with everything on it and win 10 will ignore Win 7 ?
