My new 128GB SSD arrived in the post yesterday, so this morning followed the method I posted. It failed at the first hurdle since the Start Up disk that MS Win7 Backup & Restore produced would not boot the pc. Problem with BIOS and EFI.
So, followed your suggestion and downloaded Paragon.
Following their method I did not need to make an image of the C-drive data, just simply copied C-drive to the new drive and put the new drive in without the original C-drive and away it went. After extending the Windows 7 partition into the Unallocated drive space, I now have what I wanted: a C-drive with about 50% unused which will allow for future additional software.
So thanks for the recommendation and also thanks Tim for concurring Paragon.
