Cool, quiet and fast. WD Caviar Blue drives offer superior performance and reliability, making them ideal for business and family desktops.
Any ideas? I don't want to return the SSD, I want to get it to work.
Thanks for contacting us.
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.
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?
