Windows 7: More SFC /SCANNOW Issues

No problem

- Just attach the SSD
- (I prefer to use the bootable Macrium CD/USB) boot to Macrium
- Clone the C partition to SSD
- Remove HDD for now (pull the power cable enough)
- Boot to Windows with SSD
- If cloning didn't use the full SSD capacity, extend C in Disk Management (or Partition Wizard free)
- Re-attach power to HDD
- Change boot order to SSD in BIOS
- Once in Windows, delete HDD partitions, and create one partition as D
- Also run Windows Experience Index
- Check SSD Tweaks and Optimizations in Windows 7
- Also Samsung Magician will offer some optimizations, just don't enable buffer flushing (may cause data loss in case of power failure)

All this is assuming your data is backed up already, or HDD C is smaller than 256GB. If not, backup the data to another place and delete from HDD C.

Hope these are clear, if not ask away.

Scr, that's good On my desktop I use Acronis TrueImage 2010 Home, but everywhere else is Macrium free.

Macrium latest is v6 by the way, released not more than 2 months ago?!

I've been very happy with v5 and seems to do all I need. That's not to say that if Macrium made me some offer down the road that I liked on v6 I wouldn't jump on it. Right now I can't justify the cost of the update.

No need to upgrade when everything works, just like my 5 year old backup program

Thanks for all the input, guys- it's appreciated!...We'll be back in touch on the SSD upgrade, GokAy.

scr, yes, I have the Digital River one as well. It's a shame they pulled that.

Have a good one, and we'll be in touch.

Cheers!
