OK Wolfgang, So I have a brand new 2 tb Seagate I've installed and it's asking if I want to initialize as either a MBR or GPT disk. MBR is default highlighted and seems the logical choice? OK MBR selected and now ready to image my Samsung over to the Seagate.

Imaging to the HDD via Acronis 2010 will take some time, I'll hit the thread back when completed.

Acronis is a bit slow. Macrium is faster.

Actually I'm back, it was much quicker with the HDD then the process was with the Vertex...go figure? I'm going to wipe the Vertex drive completely now! Then ask for help with restoring the image to the Vertex.

Acronis Drive Cleanser is saying 10 hours to complete wiping....is this normal? Now 24 minutes later I'm at 7 hours so it'll just take what it takes !

I highly doubt it with an SSD. I don't know about the drive cleanser, but it sounds like it is basically doing a 'clean all' which I would never do to an SSD. You can run diskpart and simply use the clean command (low level format) or a secure erase with Parted Magic ( instructions). That takes less than a minute to do.

Link your new thread to the above posting. Then we can discuss it. I think what you are doing will not go over well with the SSD. You'll need a Secure Erase.

"System Manufacturer/Model Number I don't do System Specs "


Oh well.
Can't help those kind too much.
Common, I can almost guarantee that if any suggestions are given, my System Specs wouldn't be required. Why is everyone hung up on System Spec, most of the users on this board offer, so I'm one of the few that don't, why get yourself all tied in a knot or not help over that, it really doesn't make sense, even if you think it does. Offer a suggestion to help with a problem, and see where it leads. It sound like a car having a flat and you need the name of the tires to suggest a solution, does that make sense ?

You ask questions about your system, but won't tell us what your system is. If it was one time it would be "oh well", but to refuse to do it, and in fact turn it around like it is everyone else who has a problem. It's your choice not to put them up. But you will not get help from some. Your choice. It's not like your tire analogy. It's more of your engine is pinging, and you won't tell us the timing, compression, or firing order. A Guy
