Thanks for share !
I have been using AOMEI Backupper for a long time and would highly recommend it for buck up&clone.
For example, when come to system backup, it provides "One-click back up all data of system drive, including system files and installed applications, without interrupting work".

Hi sean, I have the Intel 530 240GB.

I am not migrating my OS from HDD to SSD.

I am only intending to do an image (as you suggested after a fresh OS installation on the SSD & after i have optimise the system) for back only so if anythin goes wrong, i can revert back to a fresh OS without re-installing again (as you suggested)

The Intel® Data Migration Software seems to do migrating only.

Is the "Acronis True Image WD Edition" applicable for me to do an image on the intel SSD?

Or for image backup for intel SSD, you would recommend something else?

Thanks

I'm looking at the first post of this topic, and since it's a few years old I was wondering if there's some new good easy to use cloning software?
I'm on the verge of updating a PC from an HD to an SSD cloning the windows 7 system and later upgrading to 10 after I've migrated to the SSD (or should I do it in the opposite order?)
