Windows 7: Show us your hard drive performance

It is very easy to migrate the OS to the SSD. But do NOT use Ghost.

The easy way with 3 clicks is when you use this program: Paragon Migrate OS to SSD - System migration to Solid State Drives (SSD) - Overview

For the geeky way, you can follow my tutorial. In that case, I suggest you first move the bootmgr to C : Bootmgr - Move to C:\ with EasyBCD Then you have to only image and restore the C partition and can forget about the 100MB system partition (or in case of a Dell, the active restore partition)

Used Paragon Migrate OS to SSD. The best $20 I have ever spent. Incredibly quick. Almost too quick in the sense that I doubted it did it correctly. One of those too good to be true situations.
Worked perfectly. Have been running off of my new SSD for a week now flawlessly.

Thanks for the suggestion

Great job. I have Paragon Migrate too. It works perfect every time.

And here is mine,
but why my HDD's temp is higher than yours? 47*C is too high? Thanks :-)

You did not let it run to the end and missed essential data like access time which shows only with a complete run. And 47C is nothing to worry about.

I thought I'd test ASRock's XFast USB out on my WD USB 2.0 drive

Without XFast

XFast Normal

XFast Turbo

A slight improvement but nothing like the performance gain the guy gets in the video. He's using an SSD in an external enclosure. His scores with XFast on "Normal" look low to me.

That's an SSD and HD Tune is not designed for SSDs. You should check out the SSD thread

I just picked up a 3TB WD USB 3.0 drive and tested it with XFast USB. Results on Turbo are actually a little worse

Normal
