SSD Cloning/Migration software

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have been eyeing the Samsung 840 Pro series and Intel 520 Cherryville series for a while now. Both come with SSD migration software, but I've heard negative things about the 840 Pro cloning software. I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on whether it's worth it to use the offered cloning tools or if you have a recommendation for another 3rd party tool. Basically, if I upgrade my boot drive, I want to literally copy the entire boot drive. I want to boot up the computer with the new SSD and everything be as if I never made a change. All my settings, registry entries, etc. properly intact!

The person that helped me with my 840 Pro install suggested that I use the free Macrium Reflect. He told me to use the cloning feature and not imaging. It also has an alignment feature for SSD's. On another forum there is a tutorial that suggests using Paragon's Migrate OS to SSD 3.0. It does everything for you, just start it up; but it is $20.
