New SSD - Reinstal Win7 vs. Restore


Recommended Posts

I expect to install the Force 120GB SSD within the next couple of days.


My system is a fairly new build and I'd prefer not to reinstall Win7 from scratch if possible. I'll be using Acronis to restore the system disk partition and I already have AHCI enabled.


My question is, What does a fresh Windows install do for me that's specific to the SSD.

It aligns SSDs during the format process but if you format the drive first from within windows, I think it will be aligned that way as well. When doing stuff like this you should always check the alignment of your drive after you restored the backup using Acronis.


There are guides on the internet do this check.
