I'm curious. What did you put on the SSD in preference over the OS? Or are you just waiting until the SSD exhibits reliability (or not, in this case) to put the OS on it?
Note - if you are not running Win7, the partition(s) you created on the SSD may not be aligned on 4K borders. If that is the case, you may be better off formatting the new SSD on 4K borders and copying rather than cloning the data. Although I think (?) that EASEUS can correct this during cloning....
I am a Flight Simulator enthusiast. Flight Simulator was installed on the SSD E: drive for faster loading purposes.
Recently my computer (I have had the SSD drive about a year) became erratic in seeing my E: SSD drive. It would load the drive about 50% of the time I started the computer. I would have to restart the computer over and over until it would finnally see the E: drive. Sometimes even after the E: drive was loaded it would disappear.
Called OCZ suport and explained the problem. Support prerson said it appeared the drive was failing. We made arrangements to receive a replacement drive which arrived today. I have my tech person schedualed to come and transfer data tonight.
I was concerned about my tech persons files to transfer data. I guess I should have said the word copy instead of clone.
At any rate I appreciate your interest.
Of course if the new SSD drive still continues to disappear after the new drive is installed Im not sure what to look for other than the motherboard so I hope OCZ support was right.
Any input is apprciated
