But originally (when you got stuck) you must have had more data than would fit on an 80GB SSD - is that right? Because 70GBs should have fit. I am asking the question because I wanted to evaluate that tool myself. But they have not yet sent me the download link for the trial version. They are Germans at Paragon and don't work on Sundays - LOL.

I had around 400 Gig used on the big drive , that I had move files off until I got down to 70 gigs . also migrate OS to SSD will correctly align copied partitions to 4K.

Total, thanks for the answer. I figured that this was your original problem - trying to fit 5 gallons into a 1 quart pot, LOL. And it is good to know that their alignment works.

Only took around 6 hrs to move files .. it is lightning fast now ..
You will also need these files from intel , intel also has a FREE data migration software , The Intel® Solid-State Drive (SSD) Toolbox. Intel® SATA SSD Firmware Update Tool .

Thanks for the link. But my new SSD is an OCZ. My Intels are all older Gen1 and have been happily running for quite some time.

The notes to the Intel software contain this quote:

"After you install your Intel® SSD and the Intel® Data Migration software, the software will detect both your old and new drives and guide you through the cloning process, i.e. show you how to move all of your data from your slower HDD to your fast new SSD. Before you begin, however, make sure the amount of data on your old drive doesn't exceed the size of your new SSD."

I take that last sentence to mean that the Intel software does NOT have the same capabilities as the Paragon application and cannot exclude data chosen by the user?

The release notes say it is "powered by Acronis".
