    Question Cloned Windows 10 drive only boots with source drive as D:

    I finally bought an SSD for my Windows 10 Home desktop. It's the same size as my old HDD, 500GB. I cloned the HDD successfully via Norton Ghost 2003 on a bootable DVD (I know it's obsolete, but the function and filesystem are still the same since NTFS). When I booted the cloned SSD alone, the...

    Question Cloning SSD Partitioning

    When cloning a new SSD if I minimize the NTFS Primary (C) from the previous drive does that mean that on the new drive I will have no more space on the C: drive? Would the best option (if I want maximum space on the new C drive) be to maximize ntfs primary? Thanks!

    Question HDD to SSD clone works on 1 out of 3 computers

    I used Macrium Reflect to clone the HDDs to SSDs on a Dell Optiplex 9020, 790, and 390. It only worked on the 9020 and not the other two. All 3 of the clones took about half an hour, and all of the partitions were the same size. Just on the Dell Optiplex 390 and 790 they won't boot. They both...
  12. Question SSD Cloned but questions about the old drive

    Okay so I have the SSD cloned from the HHD. I had intended to use a different Drive letter for the new drive, will changing that in Disk Management cause an issue? And the main reason, since it renamed the SSD to match the other HDD, the HDD is not showing up in My PC obviously. In Disk...
