rather u should have just made a bootable iso off the os media using rufus and installed a fresh os on the new ssd...besides there are videos on you tube how to remove the screws and upgrade the hdd to ssd etc...would have been faster...anyway

Clonezilla is free, boots from a live CD, and it transfers pretty much any partition type to a new drive (yes, this includes NTFS/Windows).
Last weekend, I used it to move a Linux boot partition from a SSD to a nVME drive. It took less than 10 minutes (of course, Linux is a lot lighter in terms of required disk space, so YMMV with regards to time required).
BTW, I never partition my OS drive. If I need one or more additional partitions, I add a 2nd drive to the system.

I just came to a realization as I read that: When we had tiny drives, we partitioned the hell out of everything. Now that we have huge drives, nobody bothers. In fact, I'm at a point where the largest drives aren't large enough and I keep wanting to RAID a few together (mirrored, of course) just to get larger-still, single "drives". Best example: Don't give me a drive D: and a drive E: and a drive F:... I want a drive to hold all my movies.
At this rate I'll never have the room to rip my DVDs/blu-rays to disk. Even though I'm buying less and less.
I've had all week to get this done. The wife has been away since Monday and returns in a few hours and has just asked me if I had gotten it done...so now it's down to the wire...literally.
The task at hand...plugging up the lights on the artificial tree that I developed a hernia over last weekend, getting it down from the attic! I dread this since every year I wind up on the floor with a flashlight trying to find those color coded plugs...and then what to do with the plain ones...has the dot rubbed off?...why do I have space for 3 reds and only 2 red ends? Bah!

“Every now and then you get a paper which gets everybody thinking and discussing, and this is one of those cases,” said Matthew Leifer, a quantum physicist at Chapman University in Orange, California. “[This] is a thought experiment which is going to be added to the canon of weird things we think about in quantum foundations.”

In accordance with the linguistic uncertainty principle?
Indeed, because, when you think about it, we are communicating with a forerunner of a future language, so we speak, in fact, a protolanguage.
Given that that is the case, we can look deeply into it from the perspective of future language users, and actually reconstruct the protolanguage that we currently speak.
This, of course, is a big thing, because it means that, as long as we understand the protolanguage as it will be reconstructed in the future, we've got a reasonable chance of understanding what others are saying to us today (as long as they're not using a different protolanguage) -- and, indeed, of understanding the thoughts that are going through our own heads in the protolanguage.
... and that, dear Chaps, is how quantum Physics really works.
Edited because I typed "our our" in place of "our own" -- but, who knows? Maybe that's how it's said, in the future (which is now to people and things in the future, so our thinking that the now that we are instantly aware of is the real now must be incorrect)
