Thanks for the help. Original storage is a hynix eMMC 32gb. It doesn't look like it can removed, a ground wire maybe is stuck to it? The new is an adata su800 m.2 256gb. That is in the only available sata,m.2 slot. Lenovo has a button for switching boot drive so I use that to troubleshoot the adata. It boots fine and stable on either drive. I swiched back to the eMMC after I noticed the adata with such little usable space. I used Acronis clone tool free with ssd purchase. I have cloned my alienware m17r3 punny 128gb to a crucial 1tb and acronis worked fine. I did remove the old ssd from the alienware though. Will samsung clone tool work for adata ssd? Thank you to the community for such quick responses!What utility did you use to clone?
What is the make/model of your new ssd?
A clone is a bit for bit copy so the original 29gb space is what got cloned.
A ssd maker will usually have a utility to move windows to their ssd and reallocate space.
Samsung has a nice one for their devices.
In this system, I'd recommend NOT cloning it.
The 32GB source drive has little in it but the OS, so you're not really saving anything.
Just do a clean install, wiping both drives as you go through the process.
Yes, just barely.That makes a lot of sense. Is approximately 29gb even big enough to fit windows 10 and still have enough space for speedy operation? Am I right in saying flash slows way down when near max capacity?
With a device like there, there isn't a lot you can do.Here I was thinking it would make a big difference. It's my girlfriends and she was just gunna get a microsd and I said NO. I know about computers and stuff a sata,m.2 would be a much better option. LOL. Thanks for the advice!
