1. The new SSD only requires to be initialized prior to using or cloning. A guide on how to initialize can be found here.
2, I believe the computer will be unaware of the change if you use the EaseUS todo back up, however, I am not super familiar with this back up software and that might be more of a question for their forum.
Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.
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.
Hi ,i have my new ssd arriving tommorow,i wish to clone my existing hdd to the ssd,i have purchased a laptop upgrade kit as i wanted to use the usb cable connector to clone the drive.
Now im using a desktop but in the desktop kit i couldnt see a mention for the usb to sata cable hence why i orderd the laptop version.
Sooo my question is,will the laptop cloning kit will work on a desktop as its just the same in a sense to a laptop?
I have a new Lenovo M93 Q85 chipset i7-4770 small form factor desktop. It contains a 1 TB 3.5 inch HDD. According the Lenovo website, this machine can have 2 drives but when I opened it up it looks as though I will need to install Crucial SSD and 2.5 inch HDD in a caddy of sorts. It will be internal and I dont need hot swap capability. SInce I have Sata input in the back of the PC it might be just as easy to simply replace the HDD with the SSD and buy an external SATA drive for my data.
So, my question is, if this is indeed possible to do internally, where do you find the caddy for both drives to put it all inside and adapt the space of the original 3.5 in HDD?
Is it worth the headache? I will fresh install Win 7 Pro on the Crucial SSD so cloning is not going to be involved at all. I need the 1TB drive in the computer currently for another computer so nothing is going to waste. Any and all input greatly appreciated! Thanks!
Thank you for contacting us today. The Crucial M500 does appear to be completely compatible with your system. It does also appear that your HDD does have the correct connection.
This is what the SATA connector looks like:
This is what you appear to have. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.
