Basically I want to know if there are any problems with using a program like Ghost/Acronis to image over my current C drive to the SSD?
I've read an article that says there might be problems when doing this. Another forum has posters saying that it won't have problems but it will degrade my SSD performance. Can anyone give any advice please? Thank you.
I used Acronis to copy my C: from an HDD over to an SSD on my Asus G73jh. I probably could have used the recovery disks I burned from the recovery partition, but since I had no true Windows Install disk, I chose to copy the partition over. As of yet, I have had no problems; I'm not sure if a clean install would be faster, but seeing as how it is so much faster than a regular HDD, I chose to leave it alone.
Right now I'm getting read transfers around 150MB/s on the 80GB Intel SSD. Much lower than advertised, but much faster than the old HDD which could barely muster 75MB/s.
Thanks for all the replies. Decided to just do a fresh install. One last thing worries me. The alignment of ?blocks/pages? on the SSD. Is this done automatically for me when I install a fresh Windows 7 to the SSD? Or do I need to do the steps listed in the post below and why is the magic number 64?: http://forum.thewindowsclub.com/windows-7-management-su...
