On a reset when windows finishes booting it runs and tells you it's successfully copied your drive and you should now change the boot order...but of course it hasn't. not terribly helpful.

I've mailed support but they haven't replied yet and scanning the net there are lots of people having problem swith this software and support isn't very good.

Looking at the partition layout of the SSD after the failure it's copied the 83MB or so system partition but hasn't even created the primary partition, much less copied it.
Too bad you had so much trouble. I have migrated several systems with the program and never had any trouble. I have also communicated with the Paragon people and always got prompt responses. Hope you can sort it out.
