SSD technical question

    Hi everyone, in this period I am thinking of installing an SSD. My monthly hardware scan found an "S.M.A.R.T. warning" and I read that it may be some problem of the hard disk.
    So I thought that putting some parts of the PC on the SSD puts me safer. This is my question: if I install the SSD how do I put ACC? Do I have to do a clean installation with the risk of losing all ACC data?

    Steam has the option to move your game install to a different drive. You can use that and your save games etc. Will be unaffected.

    Are you planning to replace your HDD with an SSD or just add an SSD to you existing system? If you’re getting SMART warnings, it’s best to replace the drive before it fails completely, even if it’s just with another HDD.

    If you plan to replace, get disk cloning software and just transfer everything to the new drive.

    100% replace. Samsung SSD’s come with software to clone your old drive to the new SSD and are generally the best SSD to get. If sticking to SATA drives get a Samsung 860 Evo in the largest size you can afford and clone your drive to it. Make sure the SSD is big enough to clone the data from the HDD to it of course.

    Is this your main drive that Windows and the rest is installed on or secondary drive?
