Why we need to migrate OS to SSD? That’s because SSD has a faster reading and writing speed than traditional hard disk and it can minimize the chance of data loss due to shaking and knock. SSD also has lower power consumption than traditional hard disk. So it is a better choice to set SSD as system disk to get better performance and decrease boot time.
AOMEI Partition Assistant is a free partition manager software that also allows you to migrate OS to SSD, resize partition, extend partition, split partition, move partition, copy partition, create partition and merge partitions on Windows 10/8/7/Vista/XP, etc.
