My System Specs

Default Couple of questions

I couldn't think of a title for this, but here it goes. I currently have an OCZ Agility which I plan to sell because the stuff I do doesn't really need an SSD. I have all my programs on my "E:" drive. When I install Windows onto my other hard drive, can I just leave my programs on the "E:" drive and have them still work? Or, which I'd prefer for organization's sake, is there a way to migrate everything from the "E:" drive to the Windows install drive? (I want to be lazy )

Secondly, what's the best way to completely clear an SSD? I know for hard drives I'd just zero them out a couple times and I'd call it a day, but I don't think that would work for an SSD.

A lot of stuff may not work as they won't be in the registry anymore. You will either need to reinstall them or clone your boot drive to the the new drive. You won't be able to easily move them to your C: either.

I didn't even notice the second question. use HDDEerase. CMRR - Secure Erase

It is a dos propram but it complete erases all the cells on the SSD.
