    Hello everyone, I’ve recently bought a new 512GB SSD to replace my 128GB one which is at 78GB full so I looked up how to clone my old data on the new one and found ways to do it with an external ssd reader and Macrium reflect and i bought a MMCRRX SSD M.2 USB C Box supporting B-key SSD (my new ssd is this one) they seem to be incompatible Upgrade to a bigger SSD :( but since i also have a D: with 1TB can i clone my current SSD on the D: drive take the current ssd out and put in the new and then put back my data from the D: to my new SSD ? Thanks in advance for your answers

    Clone SSD to bigger SSD

    Been trying to get my new 480 gig Sandisk to take a direct clone from my old Sandisk 128 gig SSD and all the programs I've tried keep assigning separate drive letters to each partition and then the bigger SSD wont even boot right. It boots to a blank 10 blue screen with two icons in the taskbar then starts blinking from that screen to a completely blank screen. It even somehow messed up my 128 but I was able to restore it to a time just before it got upgraded and it is booting fine again to the old SSD. I've tried the free clone program that they let you download from WD and it does like all the other free versions I've tried, separate drive letters for each partition then of course it doesn't boot properly. I've got the Acronis WD edition, Easus, macroit, anything I can find free that has good reviews.
    I have always had no problem upgrading a normal boot hard drive to a bigger one but SSD to SSD must require some special settings or other steps I don't understand. I poked around here and even tried making a image but that didn't work either so I just need to know what to use that's free or cheap and how to set it up so it actually clone without adding extra drive letters and just acts like my old boot SSD only on the new bigger SSD
    Thanks, Terry
     
  3. Upgraded Windows Transfer from HDD to SSD

    Hi

    My windows was upgraded from 8 to 10 on my laptop few years back. I was trying to get the HDD replaced with SSD. During the copy process, the technician said windows cannot be moved to SSD as it is an upgraded version from 8 to 10.

    Kindly guide if there is a possibility to copy the windows to SSD ? If so, please suggest the steps.
