Hello all,
I recently bought 1 TB Samsung EVO 860 to replace my 500 GB Samsung EVO 850. All of my SATA ports are full with other HDDs ranging from 2 to 4 TB each. Samsung EVO 850 is C: Drive that contains Windows 10 and applications.

As for Acronis TrueImage, I have an Acronis image file that I stored on a different hard drive. I would restore it once maybe a few months for last few years and update then make a new image file. I had no issues restoring any image files.

Now my question is, if I pulled out old Samsung EVO 850 and put in a new Samsung EVO 860. Will I be able to restore my image file to that new SSD ever if it was created on old SSD? I will make Acronis Boot CD to restore.

Re-installing Windows 10 is not really an option because I have Angry Birds series and Microsoft Office which can be only activated few times. I'm trying to avoid from activating again and used up activation limitations. If I have to have to reinstall Windows 10, that would be fine, but hassle to contact Rovio and M$ to activate again only IF i run out of activation limitations.

Thanks! Tom

Yes, that will absolutely work.

That is the basis of creating an Image like that.
Think of it as if you were replacing a dead drive.

Put in a new one, recover from the Image you made earlier.

850->860 is absolutely no problem.
Or indeed 850 EVO to any other SATA drive of sufficient size, even an HDD.
