Solved Cloning from Digital to SATA

December 14, 2013 at 08:08:01
Specs: Windows 7 Home Primium, 2
I am cloning (ghosting) my SATA (C:) regulary to an external SATA Drive. Win7 Home Premium.
After replacing C: with a digital drive (SSD) I was able to install the complete backup-drive onto the digital drive C:. Now I seem to have no luck cloning from the digital C: to the external SATA.
Everything stayed the same, the Dell PC and the Acronis Image program. It seems to go thru the motions but nothing winds up at the external drive.

mmm... Not sure what actually happening here... What is the problem - does it not actually clone - or is it that the clone won't boot (if re-installed into the system)?

A brief trawl via google - pending more info...n - brings out that not too long ago Acronis may not have supported SSD to SATA cloning... Although by ow I would expect/hope that they do...? Which cloning util are you using?

Using Vers.11. After cloning the SATA stays empty. Nothing on it.

That version cropped up as having some issues with how it actually aligned the drive when cloned... Although the post below seemed to suggest that it was OK... But perhaps have a read nonetheless? Certainly earlier versions of Acronis had issues with SSD, by all accounts.

If you trawl/search via the dreaded google...

for cloning SSD to SATA drive

and/or add in the words - Acronis true image - for an alternative seaach?

you will find a few hits about the whole process and possible pitfalls.

The above site also mentions an alternative util to achieve...
