Fresh Install of Windows 10 on SSD Without Losing Data?

Hello everyone; I've encountered problems with the AMD graphics driver I installed. I have asked AMD for help. Unfortunately, they couldn't diagnose the issue, so they recommended I do a fresh install of windows. I'm looking for a way to perform the fresh install without losing data because I have about 3TB of data on my computer.

If you want to fresh install Windows on a new SSD without losing data, you must back up your data before starting the clean installation. Under such circumstances, professional backup software, like EaseUS Todo Backup, comes to help.

Use the Reset this PC function if you've been using Windows 10 for a long time and want to make a clean install or recycle a computer (give it to a friend, a charity, or sell it). If you plan to reinstall Windows 10 on a new hard drive most of the time, the Reset this PC option is all you need if your Windows 10 computer is operating flawlessly.

The steps to clean install Windows 11/10:

Step 1. Click Start > Settings > click Update & security.

Step 2. Click Recovery, then click Get Started under Reset this PC.

Step 3. As we perform a clean install, I will choose "Delete everything"; however, you can also choose "Keep my files" if you like.

Step 4. Click Reset to start.

Step 5. Windows 10 will restart.

Step 6. Preparing to perform a reset.

Step 7. Resetting might take some time, depending on the amount of data.

Step 8. Windows will start to check the drive for errors and fix them.

Step 9. Windows 10 will perform a clean installation again.

EaseUS Todo Backup can not only help you to back up your files but also help you install Windows 10 from one PC to another. In addition, it can also help you create different types of backups, such as full, incremental, differential, automatic, and scheduled backups.
