I should state that I have used CopyWipe for cloning drives. It's extremely fast and reliable.
I have used this for cloning the 'c' drive and it worked every time. It gets everything.

I wonder why CopyWipe would not work with the SSD. It is a normal sata interface and the program should not know the difference. Did you try it? But as tw33k says, basic copy functions should do the job.

Is AHCI necessary with SSD?
I just built a machine with a 120gb SSD and a 1 tb standard Sata drive. Is it necessary to have AHCI turned on? I can't seem to get a solid answer from anyone. One says turn it on, and another says don't use it. What's right? Many thanks to all.
