Is your computer a few years old and running slow?
Have you thought about buying a new one but can't justify the expense?
Then, why not upgrade the hard drive to a SSD and watch your computer fly...
Prices from £95
Computers that are a few years old are likely to have a old-style spinning hard disk. Whilst they work perfectly well they are slow. Newer computers generally come with SSD hard drives which are much faster.
We have upgraded many customer's computers with a SSD and they are always really impressed at how much faster the PC is compared to how it was.
Superfast boot times
Even if your computer is 7, 8 or even 10 years old it can probably benefit from a SSD upgrade. The short video shows a 5 year old laptop which had a 480GB SSD upgrade booting up from cold to the desktop in under 13 seconds!
You won't lose any programs or files
I can clone your existing hard drive to the new SSD which means you won't lose any personal files and you also won't have to reinstall any programs.
The cloning process makes an exact copy of your current computer setup and copies it to the SSD. We use Acronis True Image 2020 to clone your hard disk. The only difference you'll notice is your computer will be running much, much faster.
Or you can have a fresh installation of Windows
You might want to consider having a fresh installation of Windows 10 installed onto the computer. Programs you use such as Chrome, Firefox, Word, Excel etc will have to be reinstalled. I can do this if you have installation disks and/or license keys available for the licensed programs you use. All your personal files and photos will be copied across as well.
Personally, I think this is a great option as you benefit from a fresh installation of Windows and your computer will perform much better.
Size of the SSDs
You can choose between the following size of SSDs:
How much does it cost?

Determining what size SSD you need
It will be useful if you can provide details of the size of your current hard disk and how much free space you have.
1. Open File Explorer / This PC / My Computer
In Windows 10, in the Search box type in this pc and click Open.
2. Under Devices and drives you will see the C: drive. I need to know both figures.
eg. 128GB free of 220GB.
