booting from an NVMe and storing on an ssd?

I have an Asus 99 Deluxe II motherboard X99 chipset and I have two SSD's one running windows 10 and one running windows 7. I also installed two Samsung 960 Pros one on the m.2 motherboard slot and one on the expansion card PCIe The expansion card I want to use for the Win 7 boot up and store files on one of the SSD's after wiping it. Any idea on how to set this up? The windows 10 OS boots up fine from the Samsung 960 PRO installed on the mobo but I still want to use one of the ssd's for storage since the Samsung PRO's are 500 GB and the SSD's are 1 TB each. Quite the challenge I suppose since this was my first computer build. Thanks

    Remove all drives except the current boot one and the one you want to be the boot one. Clone the existing drive to the new one using a utility like Macrium Reflect or Clonezilla. If these are setup in dual boot now you may have an issue though with the boot menu.
