    Don't see if you clicked clone or image. Clone would go to an empty drive. Make sure you understand the difference between cloning and imaging. Here is a Macrium Knowledge Base article on cloning, step-by-step: See Step 4, in particular.

    I recently used Macrium Reflect V7 free to clone an SSD to another SSD. I didn't have to drag and drop anything.
    Just click on "Clone this disk" and then in the next step select the drive you want for the destination clone.

    Use check boxes, there's no drag and drop in MR.

    There's some confusion about cloning and copying:
    On the first screen, select backup tab, click on "Clone this disk" then select the Destination Disk
    On second screen. If you drag and drop the partition(s) from the Source disk to Destination disk, you are copying the partition(s)
    On third screen, If you check/uncheck on the partition(s), you are cloning the partition(s)

    using drag and drop will put the partition(s) next to each other

    Cloning using check/uncheck on the partition(s) will put the partition(s) at the same location(s) as the source
