The SSD will need to have the same capacity or larger than the HDD.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

There is enough space on the SSD, that is not the problem. When I try to migrate or clone I insert the HDD as source and the SSD as target next step shows the SSD as both target and source. Crazy.

It is not a matter of having enough space for the file size on the SSD, the SSD has to have at least the same 1TB capacity or at least the file size of the cloned files.

Thanks, I have migrated these two drives before with no problem Reset computer to factory then this occurred. Set the HDD to source and SSD to target, then the SSD shows as being target and source??
