Question

240gig Kingston SSD

I pulled that SSD out of my desktop computer for a larger SSD.
My granddaughter is getting a laptop next week and I thought about taking that SSD and putting it her new laptop. Is that possible?
Would I just have to format that drive and clone it from her new computer or is there more to it than that.
I have installed and cloned several new SSD, but never one that's been used before.
Thanks.

Answer
Yes.

Here's the kit I use to clone the drive. Apricom USB 3.0 kit from Amazon.

-> BUT DON'T FORMAT IT. The clone will take care of this for us.

Thanks Bob.

Thanks for that information.
I have been using Macrium Free V6.1.1023 and am pretty familiar with it. I have a USB3, SSD adapter I use.
Good to know about letting the cloning software do the formatting and not doing it in Windows.
Thanks again, very much appreciated.
