Right click on the drive in explorer /properties / tools and select the error checking with auto correction. That requires a restart on the c drive, but should fix the problem.

^ that may fix the one problem, but he may have additional problems.

Cloning is NOT recommended for moving from HDD -> SSD, migrating is OK, But re-installing windows is the most recommended method.
Coning is a 1 ->1 direct sector-by-sector copy, INCLUDING what s stored on the drive teling the OS what size it is.

Added info on adverse effects of cloning.
1) what was the BIOS set to when windows was installed on the HDD, if it was IDE, then that is what is now setup on SSD ( = BAD). This can be corrected
2) Most likely your partition is NOT correctly algined.
3) You must enable trim cmd manually
4) also need to disable defrag - you NEVER defrag a SSD.

to check 1 & 2, download AS SSD. Install and run (Do NOT need to run the benchmark). Look in the upper left, will show:
Make/model and FW
driver. DO NOT want to see "pcide = Bad"
Partition alginment: wnt to see "OK"

To fix a IDE -> ahci DO not just change bios as you will NOT be able to boot to windows.
First do this, Select either "Fix it for Me" or "let me fix it myself"

Then reboot and change bios from IDE to AHCI
