I received a Samsung SSD drive off craigslist last night. Downloaded Macrium Refrect.
HDD 300GB (150gb being used)
SSD 250GB Completely clean.

I saw a video online, it was doing fine, then i woke up this morning and saw this. Does anyone know what this means?



If this isn't the right section to post, can someone tell me where i can post this question?

@Lord Xeb, I hate tagging people for help, but I am going to be completely useless here.

Resendiz, are you trying to clone the SSD to be your new OS drive? Also a moderator will move this thread to the appropriate section.

Yes I want everything to go to the SSD. Since my laptop has 2 slots, I will use the HDD as extra storage only.

Thank you for your help!

The storage gurus will have to chime in, but I believe there are issues when trying to clone the boot sectors of the drive while it's actually running. Software cannot copy over vital sections of the Windows install while that Windows is running. There might be some software that can do this, if this is the problem.

Looks like you encountered a bad sector on that drive. Try giving Mini partition wizard a go. Either that or clonezilla.

Macrium Reflect can clone boot sectors while the drive is running.

I concur. Most cloning software will fail to clone if there are problems with the source or destination drives.

As I said in your other thread, considering where you got it, it is likely you received a bad SSD although it's also possible the HDD has become corrupted.
