So I have a 1tb SSD in my laptop and a 256GB SSD in my desktop. I want to swap these two around. Like 1tb to my desktop and the 256gb to the laptop. They are both the boot drives of each system and want to keep the data.

Starting point:
Desktop - 256GB SSD
Laptop - 1TB SSD

Desired end point:
Desktop - 1TB SSD
Laptop - 256SSD.

Way ahead:
Copy your critical data from both systems off to some other external drive.
Create a WIn 10 USB install
Swap the physical drives.
Do a full wipe and reinstall on each system. Anything less will result in several layers of tears.
