Using backup/restore to replace HDD with SSD
I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium x64, I have Acronis TrueImage 2016 WD Edition_33, I have made the Boot CD.
I want to replace my 500GB hard drive with a 500GB SSD. I have current full backups of the C partition. Can I just remove the HDD and replace it with the SSD, then Restore my latest backup to the SSD?
1. What about alignment, going from a HDD backup to an SSD?
2. I'm assuming after this operation, that the SSD will be bootable?
Thx in advance.
