So I have been unsuccessful in my endeavor of trying to move my OS from my 1TB WD Black HDD to a Crucial 250GB SSD. I have been searching the web for solutions, downloaded and tried to use EaseUS, MiniTool, and Macrium Reflect to do my task but all come up with various errors. Both drives are formatted as MBR and I even shrunk my partition on my HDD down to 160GB to make sure it wasn't a size issue. The error I get is that the sector size is different and can't proceed. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Samsung Data Migration software is designed to help users quickly, easily, and safely migrate all of their data – including their current operating system, application software, and user data – from their existing storage device (e.g. HDD) to their new Samsung SSD.

It should work with other SSD too, but I never test my all ssd are Samsung.

P.S.: Just keep in mind if you data on HDD is bigger then SSD capacity I am not aware of tool that will help you.
