rubikfan1: i just puchagesd a ssd evo(500gb laptop kit). and tried to clone my hdd to the ssd, but once it reach 100% and start verifying windows, it says: error target disc removed. while i not even touched anything. i downloaded all the software. what should i do????
temaseckff7: when u upgrade to the newer version during installation you can choose which items to clone.
temaseckff7: you have to buy a usb to sata cabl, a quick search on amazon.
Aian Mazumder: I just got the Samsung 840Pro SSD. The software installed, and then updated via Internet. After you choose your source disk and target disk, it analyzes your source disk (takes a while) and LETS YOU DECIDE WHAT YOU WANT TO INCLUDE OR EXCLUDE! Hope this helps some people looking for answers.
I migrated my OS/programs but kept all media on my original drive to use as an external HDD. I assume most people will do that since most people going from standard to SSD will be decreasing storage space
oxis77gas: I want to migrate only my steam collection of games (100gb), how to make that ?
Sam Moss: I like others only want to migrate the OS, this app looks as though it transfers everything, it would be great advantage to be able to pick and choose what you want to migrate rather than the whole shebang.
선민 이: If you didn't buy kit, I recommand you exchange hdd to ssd and install windows by CD Then you lose data but it is good
meomarte: You just connect it to any available SATA-connector. I´ve had one success before, now experiencing a boot failure. In the video they say:
"Repeat Steps 1-6 if you are unable to restart the notebook/PC."
tommyjones1978: Just buy today a 1TB EVO Sasuyng base edition and installed directly on my sata 6 port, and i see the disk on the operating system but the migration program cant! why??? its only possible to migrate with the SSD atached with the USB???
dragonfiremalus: How long should cloning the OS take? It is going very slowly for me, claiming 1MB/second.
Jane Yorick: Hey, cool video! Like it, +1.
Check my super solution! It solves all security problems! Just try it :)
TheDemonDrum: It's because you didn't bought the full kit
Badr Abbas: Can you transfer your OS (eg, Windows 7) to the SSD so it boots up extremely fast, but leave your Libraries and downloads on your hard drive? Also, will your SSD show up as another storage device under/above "Local Disk (C:)"?
Peter Chapman: just buy a sata HDD docking station. it will come inhany for other things too.
Rokoyuko: It does not come with the adapter. It comes with some papers and a CD containing the softwares.
De nyed: the ssd version of this drive here in australia doesnt come with sata adapter so does anyone know how to do data migration on the non kit verison of this ssd? i want to move my OS from my current ssd to this one , anyone help much appreciated :)
D Nnyed: hi all im getting the following
Samsung 840 Series 250GB SSD Retail Box
but im not sure if the usb adapter thing is included with my ssd :(
it doesn't mention it in the box content description
anyone can help me please?
Roy Jag: Songname pls!!! 3
SumoAnnoy: 1TB Evo due out pretty soon now.
Prices are coming down, but still, $650 for a drive is a bit much for some.
qwerty1337mgc: thanks for explanation :)
barplyer: It will transfer all data. Meaning documents, music, pictures, other files, as well as programs, personal settings and the OS. So when you finish cloning, it will be exactly the same as your old hardrive that you used to use.
barplyer: Also might be also good to do a final defrag on your old hard-drive. BUT, NEVER DEFRAG ON A SSD.
transformerXXX7: Samsung 840 Evo 1Tb coming soon :)
qwerty1337mgc: I didn't understand is it going to transfer only the data or it will transfer the windows as well?
rubikfan1: some more tips:
clear all cookies, temp files, garbitch bin. safes a lot of time copie ing
shadofist: IM having trouble with the migration tool. Upon start, it says it cannot find an OS on a disk. HELP!
pratik mohapatra: Hey,
I am getting an 840 250gb hard disk will migration tool install the os automatically? or do i have to install the os?
damegabom: Why does it only let me exclude media?????????
Kingsley Aihe: will it copy windows 8 os?
Kingsley Aihe: i want to know this also
snicklo: will it copy windows 8 os?
limnophobia H: What if I only want to migrate my OS? I have 650GB of data on my source disk and 256GB of room on the SSD. Can I leave my documents/music/movies on my C:/ drive?
nvidia290: Can I use the software while the SSD is plugged internally into the the sata cable? I didn't buy the kit just the stand-alone.
Haihang Jiang: As long as its connected to your computer in some way and your computer can detect it, it will work.
Thunder Cat: Nigga please. They tell you where to get it.
Streng Vertraulich: Guys I'm sorry if it's a basic question...
If i use this migration tool/kit can i use my new samsung as i'm using my current disk.I mean with all programs and everything or is it just like a backup for music,videos etc.
I really need help.Thanks.
rawfanboy10: Can anyone confirm that this will work without a USB if the SSD is already installed?
VilleF1N: Why doesn't this software work when trying to migrate from old single SSD to dual RAID0ed Samsung 840's? It won't even detect the volume, even tho windows detects it just fine. I hate when software is limited to certain brand if it wasn't i wound probably not be here typing this comment and wasting my time >:(
SMG4LIFE01: does this work with any hdd such as transferring from a HDD to HSSD
TheDemotricus: I fell for this rubbish - the program asked if I wanted to download the "latest" version - so I did - it wouldn`t even load. - tried again with the supplied disk and it just sat there on 0% for hours doing NOTHING. - Don`t waste your money - just install afresh on the drive - its much quicker.(and YES I followed all the guidelines) Absolute Junk.
Nathan Reimche-Vu: Lol, Yup it sure is! and now that I listen to it again and me being a musician....its so simple! lol :) Yeah I was lucky and had a SATA cable laying around from a little external seagate hard drive and was able to use that.
JamesyBoyJim: lol, it is quite a catchy happy little tune! I ended up ordering a usb to sata cable on ebay, cost me 4 quid, hopefully it'll work, really annoying samsung dont supply the cables with all drives, I had no idea the transfer couldnt be done from a sata drive to another sata drive :(
Nathan Reimche-Vu: This may be a strange question, but what sound track is this!? I really like it. And btw the Samsung Data Migration tool just works...perfectly! :) Thanks Guys :)
Nick Robinson: Useless! Mine is internal which is fine. I went through all these steps but with the disk connected to my internal SATA and I get BSOD every time. There is no info in here about AHCI versus IDE or how to migrate from IDE to AHCI. This is an advert not a guide.
Alfredo Serratos: It still worked :p
Alfredo Serratos: Kit version has it. What if you don't have the usb will it still work.
Alfredo Serratos: Mine didn't come with the usb connection?
