About HP SSD
HP is one of the biggest IT companies around the world and HP SSD is a wonderful brand storage device. Compared with traditional HP HDD, HP SSD is much faster, more durable, lighter, quieter, cooler, and consumes far less power.
And nowadays, HP SSD prices have fallen sharply due to improvements in manufacturing techniques and an increase in supply. As the HP SSD can improve computer performance and the price of it is affordable, people may want to replace their old disk with an SSD.
However, people may have collected lots of programs and files on your old hard drive over the years, and they don't want to abandon these programs and data. Therefore, people may want to migrate their OS and data to HP SSD.

So, you can turn to a third-party migration tool like AOMEI Backupper Standard, which can help you migrate OS and data to HP SSD without reinstalling system, applications, etc. and losing any data.
