Default Question about disk imaging

Right now I have my games installed on a 1TB Black. That drive is partitioned, its called E and F with my games on F. I'd like to image just F to a SSD, whats the easiest/best way to do it?

Yes sir, I'm 99.5 % sure of that.

Short of that, if the games are on Steam then use the backup feature for each game.

I have all my Steam games backed up on a 2tb drive.... just in case.

I used Gnome Partition Editor, aka GParted. Linux-based, can be had as an ISO so works off a CD or USB. Copy and paste the whole partition, and ensure it's properly aligned. Only issue is if it's a boot drive, in which case a little fiddling with boot records is required.
