I recently built a new computer and want to repurpose my old computer as a file/plex/backup server. The only upgrade I want is to install a small SSD as the boot/os/app drive then use the existing HDD as a pure data drive.
The current OS on the HDD is Windows 10, but originally I put Windows 8 on it and got the free upgrade from Microsoft a few years ago.
I have looked into cloning, but as I understand it, the new drive has to be at least the size of the old one. My new SSD would probably be 240GB+- while my existing HDD is 1TB. So that means cloning is not going to work, right? I mean, you can't tell something like EaseUS to clone only particular parts of a drive, afaik.
Is there some other solution for my case?
