It came with software to clone it through a USB port. I did have to borrow a "USB to hard drive" connecting cable. So the procedure was: Hook new SSD to a USB port. Put in the software CD & follow instructions. After it's done cloning, shut down, unplug, remove old hard drive, put in SSD, plug back in. It took a while to clone....maybe over an hour? I just went away and when I came back a few hours later it was done.
One other thing.... I did buy a plastic "holder" to put the SSD into so it will fit into the old hard drove bay. That was $3 delivered from eBay.
Oh yes, treat it like any hard drive.... back stuff up as usual.
