How to change SSD?

I purchased http://www.ebay.com/itm/171829455776?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT Sealed Kingston 120GB 6Gb/s mSATA SSDNow Solid State Drive SSD SMS200S3/120G.

How do I change SSD's and keep the existing system and data on the other 32GB SSD?

There is a 1TB extrenal HD attached.

Backup current SSD by external tools like Acronis, or by Windows Backup feature (full disk backup), to HDD, then restore to new SSD after replacing.

Thank you for replying.

I use Ubuntu so researching Acronis told me of Clonezilla.

I've downloaded it and will do research on how to use with Youtube.

Thanks again for replying.

Don`t forget to include into backup system hidden partitions (EFI and MSR, two 100 MB-sized parts in beginning of SSD), otherwise you will loose Windows boot.
