Drive cloning question.

So, when you have a cloned Windows installation from your source drive, is it as simple as just being able to use that drive clone from when you made the clone and then continue using windows as normal? Is there any gotchas associated with it? Anything worth noting?

If I am understanding your question... you cloned your boot drive and want to know if the new copy is 100% awesome and perfect?

 

Yes it is.  100%.  Done it a half dozen times with Samsung Data Migration, Macrium Reflect, and the Crucial software.

 

No gotchas, no "still have to do this", nothing.  Plug it in and go.

Yes, it will clone the drive as is. Just switch the boot drive and good as before.

From ssd to ssd, most of the time no problem, there are some rare cases when you clone hdd to ssd, but i never experience it.
