  1. Windowss 10 cannot clone from SSD to Hard Drive


    Is there a preferred program and method to simply clone an SSD install of Win10 to a freshly formatted hard disk with plenty of room. Format and MBR was done through Win10 on the SSD to the HD.

    I have been having a repeated problem of drive recognition after running Norton Ghost which says
    successful completion in the usual way. Then on reboot I get the grey screen for Boot Manager which says if I recall right no device connected. The HD shows up at POST etc and is just in the Boot area so far as I can see.

    Full disclosure is I haven't gotten the proper thumb drive yet to make a Win10 Repair disk to get
    to the MBR and fix boot commands.

    Is this a known problem and is there a good solution?

    One other thing on this: On the SSD how can I check for a System overwrite which could display as Win10 (Restored) just like that in parenthesis? The boot error message contains this drive identifier phrase where it should not exist.

    :)

  2. cloneing a drive in windows 10

    Hi,I have this question last year,but my os is windows 8.there are my steps of

    How to clone drive in winodws


    ,you can check.hope that helps

    First,I download a free tool of MiniTool partition wizard and launch it.

    Step 1. Connect SSD to Windows 8. Install and launch MiniTool Partition Wizard Free Edition, select the source hard drive and then choose “Copy

    Step 2. Select a disk to copy the source disk. Here you are expected to choose the SSD (we choose disk 3).

    Note: All the data on SSD will be destroyed, so make sure you have done backup in advance. You are allowed to clone a hard drive to a smaller SSD, as long as it can hold all data in the source disk. You can also clone SSD to larger SSD by using MiniTool
    Partition Wizard Free Edition.


    Step 3. Review the changes you are going to make and also change the copy options if necessary.

    Step 4. MiniTool Partition Wizard will tell you how to boot from the destination hard drive. So if you are cloning boot drive to SSD, you need to pay attention.

    Step 5. When you are lead to the main interface again, you can preview the changes you are going to make from the middle pane. (Here disk 3 has the same disk layout with disk 1.) If you confirm these
    changes, you should click “Apply” to make the changes effective. Hope that helps

    Moving to SSD. Clone or not to clone?

    Part of how I keep my SSD fast is to clone it to a platter drive, then clone back. You just want to make sure that you are only cloning teh used space, and not the empty space.


    So, again, I isntall Windows to the ssd. Clone to platter drive, then clone back.

    I am not sure why, but if I do not do the clone step, the drive's speed, and windows booting, decreases substantially within a week or so.

    I am using a Corsair F60 SSD and a Western Digital 500AAKS as drives, and using the free version of Acronis that WD provides, if any of that matters. I am not sure, at this point.

    Migrating to a SSD - clone or fresh install?

    Also to make it clear when cloning both the source (your hard drive) and the destination drive (your SSD) must both be connected.

    When Imaging only the source (hard drive) and an external USB drive to store the image need be connected. After the Image Backup is created you remove the hard drive, connect the SSD and restore the image (using the image backup product's "Recovery Media"
    which you need to create and boot from) to the SSD. Most products also have a "SSD" option check box to properly configure the SSD offset.

    You can read a product's user's guide to see exactly what step are required for cloning or imaging.
