well matalmania I can certainly agree with that, which is the whole reason for moving them off this P.O.S stinker of an app.

Unfortunately the Tron Gods decided to throw a monkey wrench into the plan.

On the upside I located a nearby sata drive enclosure for sale (not at BESTBUY!) for about 20 bucks and will be getting it tomorrow.

In the mean time I have the old HD in the new HP chassis and boot to Macrium Relfect and am imaging the system partitions with the app etc.

Oddly my usb storage drive is not playing nicely with this HD and macrium. It works fine with the Toshiba and HP drives.

It sees it but it is marked read only, gotta figure out why.

If nothing else, once I get the enclosure it should word to create the image and then convert to VHD and/or restore to new metal.

I am heavily leaning to loading this as a boot-to-bare-metal-VHD and telling them to suck it up on dealing with new tech.
I had a similar issue with this read only. Check your AHCI settings in bios. User here essenbe member might be able to clarify on how to properly deal the activiating it if that is the case. Backup drive issue
