Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I am looking for how to replace the 1 TB Hard Drive with  a 1 TB SSD in a computer that is has 1 TB Hard Drive plus a 128 SSD.

I know I can make a system info file or Clone the drive, but not sure where the Window 10 operating system is.

 

Can anyone help?

hi

You certainly have a 128gb m2 type SSD
it is directly on the motherboard
and a classic sata hard drive
Windows is installed on the SSD, which is the fastest
So the choice to replace the HDD with an SSD may not be the right one
Try the scan
