Excellent product, delivered quickly.
Seagate hard drive arrived promptly, fit perfectly into our eMachine, and is working extremely well. Totally pleased with the product and the people at Crucial for ensuring that it was made for this machine.
fit exactly and came wiyh all the cables and worked right out of the box
Any ideas? I don't want to return the SSD, I want to get it to work.
I plan to replace my System HD with a Crucial M500 6GB 240GB, and my data drive (used also for P3D V2.2 flight simulator) with a Crucial M500 480GB. These drives are presently C:\ and H:\
Could you please advise:
1. Does the new SSD require formatting before use? I intend each to have only one partition.
2. I have EaseUS Todo backup software which can backup each of these drives. If I replace the old drives, using the same sockets, and then use an EaseUS boot disk to restore each relevant backup to each new SSD, C backup restored to C, and H to H, will the changeover be complete, with the computer unaware of the change?
I am running Win7-64 on an ASUS P868-V Pro motherboard.
Thank you for any help you can give.
Regards, Jim H.
Thanks for contacting us. Defragging can save time for the cloning process so you may go ahead and perform a defrag. It's definitely not necessary, however.
