Any ideas? I don't want to return the SSD, I want to get it to work.
I like to play around with my computer in a way that's not exactly easy on hard drives.
Any advice/experience that might be relevant?

I am in the process of changing from a 256GB M4 SATA SSD to a 240GB M500 SSD. (I'm unable to upgrade the M4 firmware as laptop has UEFI BIOS). I have imaged the M4 to an HDD and find that the C: partition is 12% defragmented and the recovery partition Q: is 99% defragmented. I have a Lenovo T430s laptop running Windows 7 Professional.
Should I defrag both partitions before installing the new SSD, or not bother?
