    I used a Samsung 840 EVO (for Laptop PC Upgrade) which came with a simple connector to attach between the SSD data/power connectors & the USB port on the laptop. The supplied software worked flawlessly to transfer the OS across to the SSD.
    I have just bought a Samsung 850 EVO thinking I could use the provided Data/System migration Software - HOWEVER it seems this does NOT work with Windows 10!

    Also I have heard good reports about this program:
    http://www.paragon-software.com/tech...ate-OS-to-SSD/
    You need to take disk and partition size into consideration if you're moving from a larger HD to a smaller capacity SSD and not all cloning or copying software can deal with it properly. Apparently the above program can, but I have not used it myself. It costs about $20 but worth it if it will do the job properly. As always, make sure you have a good backup of your user data beforehand.
    I checked this out - YES it is cheap But you should take note of this:

    Note!

    - Migrate OS to SSD only transfers partitions that contain the chosen Windows OS and system boot critical files. If you need to migrate your entire system, including all system and data partitions, please use Paragon Drive Copy.

    - Dynamic discs are not supported.

    In my case this is not what I want since I do not just want a Copy of System but of the whole data - which would mean I have to buy the Paragon Drive Copy 15 Professional at 39.99 $

    I hadn't spotted that feature of MiniTool Partiton Wizard. Is the migration facility reliable?

    I've never used MiniTool as I use Paragon Hard Disk Management Suite. I only posted it up as a free option for the OP to consider. MiniTool does seem to have a good rep though...so I'd **imagine** it would be fine...

    Hope it is okay to jump-in here with same/similar problem


    Hope it is okay to jump-in here with same/similar problem - if it is not please let me know and I will start another thread - but since it is the same subject....

    I am trying to find out how exactly I go about transferring my System + Data from a Medion Akoya E1318T 10” Notebook with 500 GB HDD to my just bought Samsung EVO 850 250GB SSD – and how to do this easily and safely.

    As stated above the provided Samsung Software is no good with Windows 10 – that is out!

    The suggested Paragon Software is no good for what I need = System + Data (even if there is not much of the latter on the HDD) - so this option is also out

    Unless I go for the more expensive Paragon Drive Copy 15 Professional = which they say IS suited for Windows 10 – which is a good thing! But I have never heard of this Software company before and a little unsure????

    So this leaves me with the free version of Macrium Reflect – which many people recommend on this forum – but it does require some tech know-how – and I don’t know what I should do to ensure I get a correct Migration of System and Data from intern HDD to my still extern SSD – and the following steps should I get this done.

    I have also bought an extern inateck USB 3.0 Portable HDD Enclosure in which I could place the SSD for the transfer.

    But do I do a clone (and can I do this as the SSD is only a 250 GB)?

    Or do I do an image to the SSD?

    Or do I just do a System Backup to (extern) SSD?

    AND after doing either a Clone or Image (whichever is correct?) can I just remove the SSD from the external inateck USB 3.0 Portable HDD Enclosure (and having removed the intern HDD) just insert the SSD into the Notebook – and everything will work correctly from the SSD?

    yes, you cloned from internal to external drive, physically insert ssd to your laptop then you are in business, nothing hard. It is downloading macrium, then plug your external ssd into your pc, clone it. That's all, I have done it so many times without fail, today I can closed my eyes and run it, if you believe me.
