Windows 7: For everyone that plans to buy a SSD

For everyone that plans to buy a SSD

This link was already posted before. But I just like to remind you that this is an excellent tool for migrating the OS to the SSD. Paragon is currently offering it for free.

If you plan to install a SSD, you might want to get it now and keep it in stock. It does, however, not say for how long this "test" version will be working. The website is in German, but the product is in English. If you have any problem with the German verse, let me know and I help you.

Another member just used this free version to migrate his system and it worked well. I have used a test version and that worked well too,

Thanks for the link.

Is the program you used 2 or 3 weeks ago that allows you to transfer only portions of a partition and thereby avoid having to shrink it? The program that costs $20 normally?

If so, I might keep it. I probably won't be buying an SSD for at least 6 months. Looks like I'm go to build a new PC, but will keep spinning drives for a while longer.

Any known limitations on this regarding functionality compared to the paid for version?

I'd guess it would work on any hard drive--not just SSDs?

It is the same program I used. It looks like a normal full version. But sometimes they limit the length of time you can use these freebies. So in 6 months it may not function any more - but the website is not specific about that. And yes, it is supposed on any drive type.
