Nieedzwiedz: can i migrate my windows 7 to ssd through my sata3 (old)
Ryan S.: do i have to migrate my data if i am just making my ssd a boot drive?
ALTrooperUK: Say i have a 1TB HDD but only 150gb was being used. Does that mean i could
buy a 250gb SSD and migrate the 150gb of HDD Data or would you need to
mirgrate the whole hard drive ?.
As soon as this has been answered i will order a 250gb SSD really really
need one my PC is so slow.
Warren Lauzon: The Samsung Migration software would not work for my 840 EVO cloning from a
smaller Corsair SSD. I finally ended up having to use the Corsair Toolbox
software to migrate it. It would not boot using the Samsung Migration.

in my laptop. but in the future i might want to put the ssd data back in
the hdd, so i can use the ssd for something else. is that possible?

Vadim Albershtein: which on is better samsung 840 or pro? im building a serious gaming station
with core i7 and gtx780ti
Richard Georges: Faster Is Always Better. What if you could increase the boot up speed of
your computer by a factor of ten? What if your computer was so fast that
you performed tasks in a flash? Well, I have been wanting to try out the
new higher capacity Solid State Drives for a while now, and the prices have
been coming way down. So, when I saw a Samsung 840 drive with 256 Gigs of
SSD goodness on sale for $209.95 at Tiger Direct yesterday, I couldn't pass
up the opportunity. SSD drives have been around for a while now; but, they
have been very expensive and have been too small for most business
applications. When I got home and started the Samsung software, I realized
that my mechanical 750 Gig drive was loaded with over 300 Gigs of programs
and data. What to do? Well, all computers get loaded up with stuff we don't
need, so I spent an hour off loading stuff I didn't need to carry around,
deleting old programs that I didn't use, and got my program and data down
under 200 Gigs. You need to leave 25% of the drive open for new stuff and
for the conversion process. I figure I will save at least 10 minutes a day
that I used to spend watching the computer boot and do stuff. This thing is
now a screamer. And, as a bonus, I have a new USB drive with 750 gigs of
storage space with my old drive. If you buy one of these, make sure you get
the kit version, which has cables and mounting hardware for both desktop
and laptop installation, and the software to make it all happen. This
little Samsung ad will give you an idea how easy it is.
imsuchaniceguy: so... Can it migrate the os from my hdd to ssd ??
therdim: This SW does not work at Dell OptiPlex when migrating from 2Tb HDD to 1Tb
Samsung EVO 840. After long waiting for 100% migration you just get "Can
not clone" with some meaningless 400180(061634). :(((
kee23: can i use sata cable instead of usb adaptor?
Tsuyoshi Watanabe: I just installed 840 PRO to my 2 and 1/2 year-old DELL XPS L502X (Core
firstname.lastname@example.orgGHz, 6GB) and it is FAST. It used to take 1 minute and 22 sec to get
to the login screen, but now its 19 sec.
Data Migration tool failed once, toward the end because DropBox recognized
a new drive and pupup a dialog to save pictures on it. I closed all
programs like evernote, google talk, etc. The second time it worked. Once I
get the data transferred, then it is just get one screw driver and replace
the HDD with SSD.
I basically extended the life of my notebook by maybe a couple of years?
(and I still have 6GB=>16GB memory upgrade)
Val Skillmer: what if the source disc is larger than the SSD? i only want to copy over
the operating system. how does that work?
Mark Davenport Jr: Thanks for the vid! Getting me a 1tb ssd late spring no more loud hard
sheikh s: i can't clone the os into the ssd, it goes to 46% and error comes failed to
retrieve source disk information 205500(0322bc)
LZ2040: ok two questions:
steps 1-6?? what is the 6?
Attapon Chaisamrong: i like the back ground song does anyone know what the name of it is
javaJunky .isTrue: This is extremely misleading. You can't just "CLONE" everything over. This
software will leave a large chunk of your OS behind on your HDD. The only
way to get this to work is to do a 100% clean/fresh install of the OS of
faruq idham: Can I just migrate my windows 8 and not any other files?
Mitch Stockwell: so i migrated all my stuff to the SSD (labeled Z:) how do i get it to
become the drive i boot off of and name it C: drive?
MisterMonkeyMonk: Aaaaand a download link is nowhere to be found in the video description.
dcrstudio1: samsung ssd series is very good
gtaman72: I just got my 250gb 840 evo ssd in the mail today and the data migration
software isn’t working how I want it to. I just want to migrate my
operating system and some steam games from my 1T hard drive but it wants to
transfer 600 GB and only lets me deselect 9 GB of media files and won’t let
Родион Ясиновский: Is it necessary to buy sata - usb cable to migrate data or Samsung Data
Migration Tool can recognize ssd even if i hook it up to sata III?
Sofie Nybohm: My cloning is at 100% but nothing happens, I cant proceed. I have to press
"cancel" or "x"..... There is no Complete for me, the program does not
finish the cloning.... WHYYY?!?!?!?
wesley830: Is this for migrating the OS only or the entire contents of the drive?
KoshGames: Can I transfer from SSD to HDD as well?
Adam Woodall: When i get to the target section it wont see the SSD drive i have connected
DaBoss720: can i just transfer OS and 1 of my games? i really dont want to have to buy
a 1tb SSD and do the whole thing
Ryan Pipkin: lies, this is neither fast nor easy. I've been at getting this to work for
well over 12 hours. the software migrates over seemingly fine but the
computer won't boot off it.
Shelby Shum: Is there any way to ONLY migrate the OS?I've been trying to and it keeps
forcing me to migrate everything...
papalolita: Still waiting for an affordable 1Tb SSD.
rawfanboy10: Can anyone confirm that this will work without a USB if the SSD is already
damegabom: Why does it only let me exclude media?????????
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 :)
barplyer: Also might be also good to do a final defrag on your old hard-drive. BUT,
NEVER DEFRAG ON A SSD.
Alfredo Serratos: Kit version has it. What if you don't have the usb will it still work.
SumoAnnoy: 1TB Evo due out pretty soon now. Prices are coming down, but still, $650
for a drive is a bit much for some.
limnophobia H: What if I only want to migrate my OS? I have 650GB of data on my source
disk and 256GB of room on the SSD. Can I leave my documents/music/movies on
my C:/ drive?
Aian Mazumder: I just got the Samsung 840Pro SSD. The software installed, and then updated
via Internet. After you choose your source disk and target disk, it
analyzes your source disk (takes a while) and LETS YOU DECIDE WHAT YOU WANT
TO INCLUDE OR EXCLUDE! Hope this helps some people looking for answers. I
migrated my OS/programs but kept all media on my original drive to use as
an external HDD. I assume most people will do that since most people going
from standard to SSD will be decreasing storage space
yahoo0593: err i think its safer to just do a clean install XD.
Jose Alvarez: What song is this?
jj1877: i get an "external exception E06D7363" error! how can i fix this problem?
i'm trying to clone windows 8!
Captain Woof: there is one for 350$, but its only sata 2 and horrible reliability...
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.
Alfredo Serratos: It still worked :p
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
riphoff: Is it true data migration not fully optimize to new hardisk such as Ssds
because it copy the current setting from previous hardisk n not take fully
potential of ssds..I think I might do clean install
