I've used the WD edition of Acronis to clone HD to HD and it worked well.
I've been told that there is a forum on the Acronis website, you might check there.
I've also been told that cloning a Win7 install is more difficult because of the additional system recovery partition, etc. I tried a clone using Norton Ghost and had to do some research on the Norton forum to figure it out. You might have to do the same on the Acronis forum.
I too have cloned spinners using Acronis but I just tried again after formatting and no joy. I also am using the WD edition. What I did was removed the dongle from a WD external 2.5" drive I own and used it on the new SSD. XP sees the drive OK and the format using XP manager went normally but Acronis just says "fail". BTW, I could find no forum on the Acronis website and e-mail support appears to be only for the full edition. Guess I'm screwed.
