Windows 7: SSD - Install and Transfer the Operating System

If Disk0 is your SSD, it does not show an OS on it. There is a lot of data though. Your system is still operating from C:.

I would cleanup C before you move it to the SSD. Make sure the data on C fits on the SSD before you transfer the OS with the Pargon tool.

Then clean the SSD with cmd and try again.

Well I ran the program and then just deselected these files.

Well, you saw what you got. A bunch of leftover files but no system. You have to do it the right way ==> see above.

Sorry I don't understand. I went with method 2 so I didn't have to do much. Instructions are.
2.The easy way for transferring the OS requires you to purchase this program. It does everything for you – alignment, deals with the 100MB partition, transfers C:, shrinks the originating partition, etc. All you will have to do is change the boot sequence.

If I understand your Photobucket list correctly, you deleted a bunch of system files. Is that the correct list of what you deleted ??

Sorry, wrong click at the bottom. Should be Users instead of Windows.
What I deselected was AllShare Play, Documents and Settings, and Users. Everything else I left and was transferred to the ssd.

You cannot deselect 'Users'. That deselects e.g. Appdata which are system files. Why don't you do it the way I suggested. And do not eleiminate anything other than your very own files.

Ah, I see what you mean now. I'll try that when I get home.

OK, let us know how that worked. Just make sure you end up with no more data on C than would fit on the SSD - before you try the migration. And it is good practice to leave 10 to 20% of the SSD empty. That accelerates the garbage collection and keeps up the speed of the SSD.

I moved my files like you said and then just ran Paragon without deselecting anything and it still looks the same.
