Did this video help you?

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.

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?

Adam Woodall: When i get to the target section it wont see the SSD drive i have connected Any ideas?

Josh Bloom: can some 1 help me, this samsung migration tool is rubbish it only allows you to migrate ALL the data. how do i only migrate my OS from HDD to SSD? pls help some1

Mark Davenport Jr: Thanks for the vid! Getting me a 1tb ssd late spring no more loud hard drive.:)

Vadim Albershtein: which on is better samsung 840 or pro? im building a serious gaming station with core i7 and gtx780ti

LZ2040: ok two questions: "re-connect"? steps 1-6?? what is the 6?

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). :(((

NoNameSoldierX: Do you have to have the sata to USB cable for it to work or can you just hook it up to a sata cable ?

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 your choice.

imsuchaniceguy: so... Can it migrate the os from my hdd to ssd ??

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?

Tsuyoshi Watanabe: I just installed 840 PRO to my 2 and 1/2 year-old DELL XPS L502X (Core i7@2.00GHz, 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)

dcrstudio1: samsung ssd series is very good

kee23: can i use sata cable instead of usb adaptor?

wesley830: Is this for migrating the OS only or the entire contents of the drive?

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. 

papalolita: Still waiting for an affordable 1Tb SSD.

rawfanboy10: Can anyone confirm that this will work without a USB if the SSD is already installed?

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 use.

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

ArronTG: will the software do the 4k aligning automatic for Win 7?

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 :)

NLGamer236: can you also do it from SSD to --> SSD (larger capacity) ?

qwerty1337mgc: thanks for explanation :)

Roy Jag: Songname pls!!! 3

Haihang Jiang: As long as its connected to your computer in some way and your computer can detect it, it will work.

Rokoyuko: It does not come with the adapter. It comes with some papers and a CD containing the softwares.

snicklo: will it copy windows 8 os?

Peter Chapman: just buy a sata HDD docking station. it will come inhany for other things too.

rubikfan1: some more tips: clear all cookies, temp files, garbitch bin. safes a lot of time copie ing

willphule: Less than $200.

temaseckff7: when u upgrade to the newer version during installation you can choose which items to clone.

SMG4LIFE01: does this work with any hdd such as transferring from a HDD to HSSD

Zsolt Horváth: really???

not A comedian: Does this also transfer the IS, and does it work on any os(Linux, OSX, chrome)
