Since your laptop came with Win10, the activation information for a new install is in the firmware. Windows should find this and use it to activate so you don't need to purchase another license.
I have a backup of files. Most aren't important as this computers main use is for vacations (which we no longer take) or make cad drawings or cast to the TV. You have just given me a valuable piece of information twice! I'm used to having to have a key to activate Windows. (Except wondering where that one left over screw goes.)
I'll just do a clean install on the new SSD and quit worrying. If this all works I'll be really happy.
