    Download, setup the process within 2minutes.
    Easy enough to use the Copy wizards...

    Doesn't NetApp use something called Waffle for how their file system/drives are setup to be redundent @Dlog?

    Instead of Raid 60 across multiple controllers why not a redundant controller device with a replicated copy of it's data on another device.
    Look at a NetApp cluster of 2x FAS 2552s, The two devices each have two controlelrs (servers) built into each that work together and are cross wired for SAS. If one of the servers were to restart, fail etc the other takes over until it's partner returns. On the second FAS 2552 you could configure a SnapVault to take copys of the data from the first FAS and in the event of a failure on the first simply take over it's job.
    I'm expaining this poorly I think.
    FAS 2552 - 1
    [{server 1 with disks}{server 2 with disks}] SAS between all wired together                    
    (super important volume one on Virtual interface with ip, if Server 1 fails server 2 takes the Virtual interface and access the disks through the shared SAS cabling)
    2x 10 Gbit High Speed connection each (2x switches interconnected with 4x interconnects, one conection per switch for redundancy) for inter cluster talk (internal data transfer)
    FAS 2552 -2
    [{server with disks}{server with disks} ]SAS between all wired together
    (Snap mirror/vault/metro...whatever of data from super important volume on FAS 2552 -1, if FAS 2552-1 fails, FAS2552-2 can provide the version of the data it has with the same IP as the virtual LIF from FAS2552-1) when you fail back you can reverse update the original volume to get data back to current.
    Again I'm terrible at explaining so here.
    Edit:FFS sorry for the necro. to much work in this post to just delete and hide embarrassment.

    So I'm getting a 256 GB SSD for my PC tomorrow and just want to make sure my setup plan is OK. My PC currently has a 1TB HDD with around 400 GB used. Here is my plan:
    Put SSD in PC Run MiniTool Partition Wizard and move OS onto new SSD Update BIOS Settings if needed Move program files over from HDD to SSD that I want to be fast (idk how to do this properly)  
    Is this an OK plan?

    Would you recommend cloning the OS? I really don't want to spend 120 dollars on the OS.

    It is good is when you read previous comments first. He has only one system partition full of stuff (probably) and really smal SSD. So no matter if he using MiniTool, Macrium or any other program - it is impossible when you have not enough space. Also - cloning/migration tools using Volume Shadow Copy when you want to clone disk while system is working, which I don't recommend. It may be good in theory, but is not that good in practice.

    I would just get a boot SSD for your OS and a few other applications, and use an HDD for mass storage.
