I have been trying in vain, to migrate my O/S to SSD (Samsung 850 EVO 250GB). In my previous post, I outlined this problem, begining with unable to make back-ups of my pc. This has now been rectified.
My SSD is just under 1 year old and seems to function correctly ie I can move files etc to it and delete. Currently, I have spent almost a month on and off trying various means of achieving the migration.
I have used the software from SAMSUNG for this purpose many times with no success. I have also bought EaseUS Partition Master 11 (latest) and used this with no success. I had a Team Viewer session (remote pc control) of over 2 hours with them, resulting in my pc becoming unusable - I had to employ a pc tech., to bring it back to life. I had to connect/disconnect the SATA cables in many configurations, turning off pc each change of cabling.
I have just had another offer from EaseUS for another Team Viewer session - don't want to risk it again!
I also tried to contact Samsung for support but couldn't find the way to do it.
In my opinion, there seems to be a portion at the begining of the drive that prevents successfully migrating to it.
I can send screenshots of the drive before using the Samsung software and the screenshot of it after.
I can't believe this is such a problem. When I first received the drive, it took the migration perfectly. Since then and various changes to my drives, the SSD will not take it!
Hope this is clear enough for you to assimilate and hopefully point me in the right direction.
Appreciate any help you can offer for this nightmare.
