    I know with Acronis True Image (dodgy copies available where AAAARRRR's know where to look) as long as the DATA isn't bigger, than cloning from a larger to a smaller drive isn't an issue. I went from a 256gb HD to a 128gb SSD, i just had to make sure the data on my 256 was under 100 ( try keep your ssd under 75% full, helps with performance) and I could clone without issue

    Just don't get an SSD smaller than 240/250/256GB, you'll regret it later. Heck, I'm already wishing I had a 500GB one

    Is there a reason you want to clone ?

    I would rather do a nice clean install of windows 10 and copy whatever i want back over from the old drive, If its just a hdd upgrade win 10 will just re-activate itself afterwards so don't worry about the licence, and creating the USB install for win 10 is as easy as using this tool.

    if it give you hassles use it to rather download the iso and then use Rufus to make a bootable USB
