Formatting or Cloning an OS

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

The SSD for my mom's notebook just arrive and since she has a bunch o crap on her laptop and i'm not in the mood of backing everything up today, i'd like to know if cloning the OS would impact in some performance losses. I know windows will detect that it's running in a SSD at the moment it boots in the SSD and i'm familiar with cloning HD to HD but i've never done HD to SSD.

PS: I'm using Macrium Reflect, is there any better software?

 


"Once there was an explosion, a bang that gave birth to time and space. Once there was an explosion, a bang that set a planet spinning in that space. Once there was an explosion, a bang that gave rise to life as we know it... And then came the next explosion. An explosion that will be our last"

 

"... To see the world in a grain of sand. Heaven in a wild flower

Hold infinite in the palm of your hand.  And eternity in an hour ..."

Macrium is the best you can get on Windows. If you have access to a macOS device, get Carbon Copy Cloner. CCC is much better, imo.


Brands I wholeheartedly reccomend (though do have flawed products): Apple, Razer, Corsair, Asus, Gigabyte, bequiet!, Noctua, Fractal, GSkill (RAM only)
