SSD Upgrade
I just purchased 2 90gb SSD's (Corsair Force GT 90Gb) and I currently have a drive with just over 100Gb of data on it. What would be the best way or software I could use to clone my current drive completely as I lost my OS disk and want to keep my system how it is currently.

you will need to use Acronis and because you want to clone you will need a portable hdd that is with at least 100GB free space but I would reccomend just do a fresh install from zero. None of your friends can help you with a Win 7 disk, or you could do a bootable USB key for the Win 7 install, is really easy, if you have the image already no need to burn any disc.

If I were you I'd use a program such as Bel Arc to grab all the serials of my installed programs and then I'd download or borrow the install CDs/DVDs and install from scratch.

Just make one of the SSDs your boot drive, install windows, go to disk management and ensure that your HDD is online, and then copy over the data and programs that you want to your SSDs.
