To be absolutely honest you do not want to copy everything from your 500Gb hard-drive (HDD. What is best is to install a fresh copy of your Windows operating system onto the SSD and then reinstall your favorite programs also.
You can then copy all your personal files,music,photographs,videos and documents to the SSD then completely wipe your old 500GB drive and use it as a backup.
I have a Crucial M4 128GB SSD which has my operating system and programs on, I then have 2 x 1TB HDD's. One I use as my main storage and have moved all the MY folders to, using this method.Moving user Docs etc. The other HDD has my large Steam games installation and all non Steam games.
By the way you should have this in either the Helproom or Absolute Beginners forums people might not see it here.
