What's the best way to clone a X25 160GB ssd to a 320 160GB ssd? The X25 is running Windows, and will I be losing any performance by not doing a fresh install? Thanks for any input.

As long as your SSD is aligned, there should be no performance impact.
Thanks. I just skimmed the manual and in the "move method" segment there is a choice between…
1) As is - a new partition will be created for every old one with the same size and type, file system
and label. The unused space will become unallocated.
2) Proportional - the new disk space will be proportionally distributed between cloned partitions
Even thought they are the same size I think it might be best to choose proportional. Maybe it doesnt make a difference given they are the same size? Anyone with thoughts on this?
