Please help.
I see G as removable disk2. But no partitions or anything on it!!
It says "no media"

It is definitely it as when I unplug it it disappears. I noticed that it said no media. Am I missing something.

Is the paragon migration tool free?

Acronis is fine. Just as macrium reflect. paragon should be fine as well. You can even simply clone.


But...... even win7 doesn't see the filesystem on SSD!! If win7 thinks it's a removable device and no media in it yet.... all software can't see it as well.

Do you have another working win7 pc there? I mean a desktop
