So, the topic of ssds has been stumping me. I can't grasp the how and why of ssds. So, do I HAVE to install windows onto the ssd for it to be functional, or is it just a regular thing to do. Can I just install my ssd, then boot up my computer like normal, and if I do will it work, or will it do something? The only reason I am buying an ssd is to have some extra storage, I am not trying to migrate to it, or to move my OS to it. If there is anything I am not realizing, please point it out. I am pretty new to computers, but I know my way around them, I thought ssds would be easy, but they are quite hard. I thought that it would be an install then I could use it, but im not sure anymore. Thanks for the answers, for I am very confused about this and need some proper help. PS: Sorry if you saw my post earlier and think this is a little repetitive, but I think I needed to reword my questions to get some answers I so desperately need.
