    I'm going to stick a Transcend 192gb SSD into my Dell 17" laptop that currently has a 2.5" spinner HDD in it. (Not entirely sure of size)

    What's the best method/software to image the current Vista install over to the SSD?

    Any recommendations appreciated.

    Acronis True Image is what I would use.

    Seagate has a lite version that you can use for free if you have a seagate drive.

    Don't even need a seagate drive. Seagate offers the download to everyone now! It's in Seagate Disk Tools I believe. :)

    Acronis True Image 100% worked every time perfectly for me.
