Whoa, i didn't know that. Good thing I only did a quick, 1 round, with Dban on it.

Even if it is DBAN, It was slow as it was before when I first got it. The guy who sold it to me used it as a SRT cache,and I have no idea what that is. I'll give it one last try before trying to see if I can RMA something that I can't prove I brought. Or just throw it in my netbook and say $30 wasted.

Anyone know a good migration software for free? I'm not too keen on reinstalling the OS again.

One reason i refuse to get Windows 8 anyways. Windows 8 is like a excuse from VISTA. They should HAD done something better and improved for Windows 7 instead of a "tablet" Windows 8. I can wait for Windows 9.

Ok so a full day or so later system running healthy still.
So 20 minutes total time to move my OS from HDD to SSD with EaseUS To Do Backup - using clone partition.
Moved a 47GB OS partition to a 128GB Samsung 830 SSD.

Saturated Sata 2 controllers are a beautiful thing biggrin.gif

Haha, nice.

Can you post a screenshot of AS SSD? I just want to see your partition alignment, no need to run the benchmark.

Hey Sean, got a quick question for you concerning System Images:

I made an image of the fresh operating system with drivers and basic programs, etc. Basically the brand new setup image. And that's all I want. I created a 20GB partition on the data drive and saved the image to it.

I want to use BitLocker to keep the user of this system from accessing this restore partition and messing it up, in case I have to use it later. My question is, will this create a problem when I go to restore from the image? Or will the image restore recognize that it has been encrypted by BitLocker and only require the password to restore from it?

No idea, I never used bitlocker before. redface.gif
