im recently got a new ssd and wanted to do a complete system restore using windows back up to the new ssd i got but for some reason when i do a repair from the disk it says that the disk is the wrong version of the disk and i should use the correct one. i created a system image of the whole os and files using win backup but i cant restore it while running it either to the new drive.

a system restore doesnt completely clone everything

download clonezilla

then clone the drive to the ssd and it will work.

makesure to install trim or it will eventually slow down and disable disk defrag as it wont help and will just wear ssd down quicker
