    I was the last person on a SATA drive in my house -- because I had so many „videos and MP3s, I didn't want to pay for a 1TB or larger SSD. I bought a „Synology NAS, which I've talked about before, and moved my media to the RAID „array on the NAS - which lets me stream media from DLNA devices in the house „and puts the media on a more resilient drive.„„After moving the media, I defragged the drive and got everything moved to „the front of the disk, thinking I might make a Linux partition on it. I „ended up with 190GB on a 3TB drive.„„I had a 480GB SSD drive in an old laptop, and thought instead I'd shrink the „SATA partition then clone it to the SSD.„„I found Macrium Reflect, it's a free bit of disk cloning software.„„*Without* shrinking the source partition and without having to boot into a „special environment, I was able to make the SSD bootable and create a „partition the size of the SSD with the data from the 3TB partition. Very „cool having one less (potentially data-destructive) step to moving data.„„„„...
