Used program Minitool Partition and it seemed to work. Now the SSD says system reserved, I can't see any files listed on it.

Secondly I was wondering can the HDD now be safely wiped?

I can provide any needed info just not sure what to in prep. Either way thanks for looking at this. I know it's posted before I just can't understand it I guess.
DiskMgmt Figure I'll include this as it seems most pertinent.

I am not familiar with the Minitool Partition software that you used, but if you want to move everything from your HDD to your SSD, including Windows and all of your programs and data, the best thing to do would be to clone the HDD to the SSD. This can easily be done with the free edition of Macrium Reflect.

No, I wouldn't just yet. Remove the HDD from the system and use just the ssd for a week or so to be sure you have a good clone. Only then format and reuse the HDD.
Ok great idea. Will do just that. Any thoughts on the system reserved and not showing the files?
Stumping me.

It is the same type of program. I have completed it successfully the clone that is.
But the cloned drive says system reserved and wont show files.
Has me scratching my head as all else seems to have worked.

Thanks to both for the replies.
You guys are awesome.

Ordinarily, this partition does not have a drive letter assigned to it. You should just remove the letter.
Right click on the 'System Reserved' partition in the lower pane and select 'Change Drive Letter and Paths..' Click the 'Remove' button.'

In your Disk Management window, which is your SSD? Disk 1 or Disk 2?

Power OFF
Disconnect ALL drives except the new SSD
Power up.
Does it boot correctly?

And also, remove that drive letter A from Disk 1
