Windows 10: Clone HDD to SSD

  1.    09 Sep 2017 #1

    Most regulars here recommend and use Macrium Reflect Free which will work on ANY drive.

    I had a bad experience with Acronis True Image a couple of years ago and would never recommend it. Macrium Reflect is fine.

    Sorry but I didn't intend to upset anyone. I just happened to find it interesting and somewhat different than using Macrium as I have always done in the past.
    You have not upset anybody.

    There are many free cloning tools out there. The free Acronis version is only available afaik as a bundled application with specific drive vendors, so ultimately is limited in its use.

    I do not see how you can get much easier than Macrium Reflect to clone - select source drive, select clone, selec target drive and execute.

    It is fine to express your experience but if you do, expect to see responses that may contradict your view.

    Hi,

    After cloning a HDD to a SSD make sure Windows sees it as a SSD and not a HDD.
    If it is not seen correctly run Winsat Disk from an elevated command prompt.

    Definitely a MR Free fan here.

    Cheers,
