Maxim Roberts: I'm trying to custom clone windows and a few games from my 1TB hard drive
to my 250gb samsung evo. It only selects media files and even when I try
and scan for everything in the hard drive it doesn't find it. Can anyone
PLEASE help me out or give me other software that I can use. Thanks
Dave Dancis: Can I delete/reformat the source disk after? Please help
Luke Bottomley: Can i clone my 8.1 OS from my HDD to my brand new SSD im about to install?
TappT: i only want to copy my windows 8, without my programs, is that possible?
John Adams: As they say @ Staples, That was easy! Transferred / cloned from HP Envy 1
tb hdd to Samsung 830 256 gb ssd in about a half hour. Installed & it
booted right up. I used an Apricorn sata to usb adapter cable. Had tried
with Easus todo backup with no luck even though it has worked many times in
the past on different pc's and hard drives.
kzbomerang: will it migrate partitions too?
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.
Archangel4316 Hines: Question 1, if I buy a 250GB Evo will I be able to transfer my OS, Steam
and some other files from my current laptop and then use the SSD in my new
desktop I'm building? Question 2, what song is that playing throughout the
video, I want to download it!
MrJgaspa: Just did it, cloned 80gb of OS data to a 250GB in under 45 min (your speed
depends on your config.), works perfectly, no windows 8.1 reactivation
needed, very satisfied, well done Samsung :)
rubikfan1: i have a question. i have a 840evo and i did cloned my hdd to the ssd easy.
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?
and can i use the software to clone non samsung hdd/sdd. as this is the
best clone software around(as far as i know), but my friend might use a
different ssd. or even just an hdd upgrade. whould it work?
TheButtonSmasher: Thank you samsung :)
Roger Dodger: Having previously sung the praise of Samsung SSD`s I have to tell you that
the Data Migration software is the worst piece of timewasting GARBAGE that
a dog ever had to vomit onto its bed.
Give it up samsung. Kill the horrid beast while you still have time. Don`t
destroy hundreds of thousands of hours of your combined customers time by
providing this error cloning failed:- "target disk has been disconnected
00001[ffffffff]" and such crap.
Its a brain-killer. Keep it away from average humans.
Kenneth Ottesen: Why do I get this message saying: <>
when it is connected all the time, and my laptop does recognize it?
I am trying to migrate from a smaller Crucial SSD to a larger Samsung SSD.
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?
James Hilger: I have a np700z3a-s07 and the rapid mode will not work. Also when I try to
delete a file from my ssd, it also deletes it off my hdd. I can't turn the
"mirror" off. I deleted my express cache software so that shouldn't be
Jordan Cowan: Can I choose to transfer my OS only or do I need to transfer the whole
Jason Holden: If only all instructional videos were this simple
Phoebe Ann Sharp: Well, that was the most content-free video I've seen in a long time...
tomal28: can i know what music is it ?
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.
Lauri K: does this software works only with samsung sata to usb connector?
Dan M: The software is the lamest I've ever seen. It hangs during install and puts
2 identical folders in your "All Programs" Folder. I've tried cloning my
drive 3 times and i get Socket Error 10053, Software caused connection
abort. Tried 2 times with the USB cable and once connecting the drive
internally. Stay away from this software. Drive is going back tomorrow.
C. Crave: Can I do this the reverse way? Say transfer data from your ssd to a regular
Java Flask: 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?

Ryan S.: do i have to migrate my data if i am just making my ssd a boot drive?
Nieedzwiedz: can i migrate my windows 7 to ssd through my sata3 (old)
KoshGames: Can I transfer from SSD to HDD as well?
Kawaii Hatsune: 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
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
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)
faruq idham: Can I just migrate my windows 8 and not any other files?
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?!?!?!?
MisterMonkeyMonk: Aaaaand a download link is nowhere to be found in the video description.
Schmidteren: can you do this without usb? with just having the ssd connected in the
computer via sata?
Attapon Chaisamrong: i like the back ground song does anyone know what the name of it is
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). :(((
Adam Woodall: When i get to the target section it wont see the SSD drive i have connected
LZ2040: ok two questions:
steps 1-6?? what is the 6?
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)
Mark Davenport Jr: Thanks for the vid! Getting me a 1tb ssd late spring no more loud hard
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
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 ?
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?
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.
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?
imsuchaniceguy: so... Can it migrate the os from my hdd to ssd ??
dcrstudio1: samsung ssd series is very good
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.
