      I learned never do a video when something else has my attention.

        That was 120% of what I needed to go ahead with my cloning. Thanks so much. Samsung themselves focuses so much on the Magician software that their advice was less than lucid.

          im quite new to PC building and I was planning on building one soon, and Im wondering if this will fit in a Cooler Master MasterBox MB500 TUF Gaming Alliance Edition case? Thanks.

              Yes. You may need a hard drive bracket but it will definitely fit.

                    Drives don't talk. They read or write.

                      Talk as in... When they are talking with the sever online or to another drive in your network. With the 400+Mbps speeds, with a 1gb internet, you can "talk" really fast with the servers to load pages faster then they would load on a regular spinning hdd.

                            If you don’t want to move all of your stuff on your regular hard drive do you need to go through the steps of data migration?

                              I just want to share my experience. I have an issue with my evo860. After I cleaned it using ccleaner and restarted it, it was stuck in infinite boot loop and black screen. It has 11192MB of temporary files before I hit "clean all". It was just my theory that it's the ccleaner that causing the issue of could be something else.

                                    My SSD never shows up in the "target disk" spot. Its blank and tells me to connect a Samsung SSD Device, which it is. I know I have it connected to the data migration cable because the blue light on it comes on. Then blinks and then stays solid. Could I possibly have a faulty SSD?

                                      Hey mate, Could you tell me if this would fit in a:Lenovo IdeaCentre A730 27" AIO Desktop 1080p i7-4700 NVIDIA 740A 8GB 1TB Blu ray I have no idea how to check. Cheers

                                        Hello, if you are talking about the SSD fitting, then yes. It's much smaller than the normal hard drive. You would buy an SSD mounting cage and just swap with the hard drive.

                                            @SaatanaKettu very interesting. I have to say, out of 45-50 of these migrations I've never had to do that. Glad you got it figured out and it worked tho.

                                              Actually needed to set the letter for it, and while turned off i took my existing hdd out and then set ssd for boot device at bios. After that it started working.

                                                Yes, it makes a clone of your hard drive. Everything is moved and will worked once the drive I s swapped.

                                                        I would try a power cycle. Unplug the computer, with it unplugged, hold the power button for 5 seconds or so. Then plug it back in and boot it back up. If that doesn't work, connect your hard drive back and make sure your computer boots. You may need to format the SSD and migrate it again. I've sadly never had this issue.

                                                          I just did this on my E590 Thinkpad today. I am loving it. The system is 2 days old new, but I didn't like the warm feeling where the HDD was stored.

                                                                Does it clone partitions from.the hdd ? Also do I need to name the ssd or will it copy the same name as the hdd. Just wanting to know because some programs look for the name to save to a particular drive

And then it recognized it fine. Then its trying to copy all my files in the ssd amd i dont have a choice. I just deleted 2 cod games and im now installing everything onto the ssd. Im just hoping i can take stuff off of the ssd when the cloning is done

If so, you may just have to create a volume. (Name it anything, like data or "SSD") once that is created, go to my computer and you should see your C: drive and your new "data" or "SSD" drive (whatever you name it) then launch the Samsung software and you should be able to migrate the data from the hard drive to the SSD.

You should be able to use a different free data migration tool to copy the data from the 1tb HDD to your new SSD.

Before you buy the SSD, see if the Samsung software has a Mac is installer, all though any program would work to transfer the data. (like acronis true image, but that's another program that I'm not certain if they have a Mac OS version for)

Search for Disk clean in windows and then select "advance". It will then find more items to clear out included an old/upgraded from OS.

Then run the program to migrate the data from the HDD to the SSD. Then just shutdown and remove the HDD and you should be good to go.

What I ended up having to do was pretty convoluted. (this is just how I did it maybe there was an easier method I didn't think of) I cloned my HDD, and because I couldn't find the SSD in my bios, I tried disconnecting it. After doing that my SSD worked. But I couldn't use my SSD and my HDD together because they were both the same drive and had windows on them. I ended up using a windows 10 installation thing on my USB key and then formatted my HDD, then once I did that exited out of that and tried to boot windows again with the SSD. That didn't work either now it got stuck in a recovery thing. What I ended up doing that fixed the problem was removing the cables from the HDD one more time, went into my bios again with just the SSD in it and was able to select it as the first boot drive. Then I replugged back in the SATA data and power cable and booted Windows this time it still booted from my SSD and my HDD was now showing up in Windows as an empty drive that had been formatted. I might have been able to avoid this if I had just removed the HDD the first time, went into the BIOS and selected the SSD and then put back in the HDD, though I don't know if it would have worked since I hadn't thought to try that before my workaround to format the HDD without using another PC.

If you are keeping the HDD in the PC then go into the Bios and set the first boot device as the SSD. When I do these I am always removing the HDD.

Cause I'm not going to just remove a perfectly good 1TB HDD. I mean, granted I have a 5TB backup external backup drive, but I don't really see a reason to get rid of the HDD. So I'm pretty sure I'll have to go into my bios and tell it which drive to boot from.

I have imaged over at least 30 computers using this software with Samsung SSD's. I have never had to change any bios settings. Once the transfer completes, I just shutdown the PC and swap the drive. With Windows 7 you would want to turn of hard drive defrags. Windows 8 (i think) and Windows 10 for sure, notices it is an SSD and makes the changes for you in the system OS. Or at least that is what Microsoft has told us lol.

The samsung's soft does it all? Not to mention to change the certain settings in bios in order to utilize full capabilities of ssd. Thank you

Everytime I've setup one of these, I've been able to plug in the SSD (with a dock or cable like I used) transfer the data and swap the drive. If the drive is not showing up, check disk management and give the disk a drive letter and name it.

You could remove the side, connect both drives and run it that way. It would likely transfer faster but doing it this way allows the data to transfer, then the PC shutdown and the drive swapped. Either way would work honestly.

I would suggest running the error on Google to see if they have an answer. In all honesty I've did this about 30 times now and only had 1 error on an 8 year old PC. It said it was "incompatible" though.

So if I migrated the OS on the new 860, I could use that as the new C drive and the old 850 that once had the OS as a D drive or do I have to wipe the 850 once its been migrated to the 860 in order for me to use the 850 as a D drive?

Will the new drive automatically have all the same passwords for windows etc as before? Do I need the activation code for windows again? Thanks

So for example if you have 120GB on a 2tb drive it should transfer that with no issues because the amount of data it is coping will fit on the SSD.

If you're on Windows 10, go to Settings>System>Storage>"Change where new content is saved" and make the necessary changes. If you use Edge/Chrome/etc. manually change the download location if you want your downloaded files to be placed on the HDD. If you want some apps or games to run and be stored to the HDD instead of the SSD, reinstall them and during the process, change the installation directory from the SSD to the HDD

Shall I disabled kaspersky internet security while it's cloning? I have also ms office 2010 too.

I used Macrium Reflect Free and amazingly it moved C: to the new SSD while the system was still running. Had i connected it to SATA0 instead of SATA1 a reboot would probably have worked as well without me selecting the boot disk in the BIOS.

I would suggest killing the antivirus service so it's not running at all. Basically kill any programs you can so your almost running just Windows and the migration software. Also check the migration software for updates.

Or 2 partitions on one hard drive? If it's two partitions and there's enough space on the SSD, you can next next finish and it'll transfer everything. If it's two separate drives you would need another SSD. Because it's only going to let you transfer either the C or D drive to the SSD.

Once the migration software completes, it will ask to shutdown the PC. Shut it down, swap the drive and your good to go. It made a copy of the drive, so it's a C: drive already.

Or before doing that, go into control panel and select the migration software in programs and features. Then see if you can "repair" it. After that try to update it again.

If it's a new PC a clean install is great. If upgradeing, it would be best to use the migration software.

I assume it's easier to do it via dock, but it's totally doable. Because; the drive will be detected no matter what.

Rebooted again and selected the harddrive that should boot (SSD on SATA1). Running fine, except the HDD spinning up and down was annoying, so i set it to always on in the Windows 10 power settings.

Just plug the drive in, launch the software and it should see the drive. I actually did 2 at work today and they worked the same way. It may depend on the adapter though. My USB dock (that's for regular size hard drives) doesn't work correctly with the ssd's. Idk why.
