    Corsair SSD software woes

    My MP510 has been installed and seems to be working. I say seems, because this is a Windows machine and the Corsair drive toolkit software is an abomination. When tasked with cloning my old Samsung SATA SSD onto the new drive, it first tried to automatically expand the recovery partition that Windows had put on there to use the new space. Once I told it not to do that, and expand the c: partition instead, off it went with Windows popping errors about how the system needs rebooting to repair and then while I wasn't looking it beeped and when I did look around the damned thing had reset. Once rebooted, the clone hadn't worked, and furthermore the clone software refused to try again on the grounds the destination drive wasn't completely blank.

    I seem to keep being unimpressed with Corsair recently.

    Slightly annoyed with Samsung as well. Their software to migrate to a Samsung SSD worked well for me in the past, but it won't migrate *from* a Samsung SSD. They could have won some serious karma if it had, probably enough to guarantee my next SSD purchase as a Samsung. But it didn't.

    I restarted the clone, but have little faith in it completing. Anyone know a good clone software for Windows 10 installs? Though I'm half expecting cloning from a SATA drive onto NVMe won't boot at the end anyway.

    Perhaps I should just do a clean Windows install

    Re: Corsair SSD software woes

    I think people rated the aeomi stuff in a recent thread. Samsung use a custom version of clonix but their standard version is locked to one pc IIRC so I've never purchased it. Crucial similarly clonix but with a worse interface imo.

    That worked rather nicely, thanks for the heads up.

    I did end up using a second PC to migrate the data so it wasn't migrating a live install (which always boggles me that they can get that to work at all on Windows) which meant I could stick with the free version. But even in that easier context, I had just lost all faith in the Corsair software so not convinced it could have even done that properly.

    Re: Corsair SSD software woes

    I have loved my MP510 nvme but then I always do a fresh install with a new boot drive. Migrating has always caused me more problems in the long run for me.

    However, I have used acronis in the past for when i've upgraded my partner's and other family's laptops and that has worked well.

    Glad you got it sorted in the end.
    Grab that. Get that. Check it out. Bring that here. Grab anything useful. Take anything good.

    Re: Corsair SSD software woes

    Yeah, before Windows 7 any hardware refresh I would just automatically re-install Windows. That was part because the HAL would always mess up royally with plug and play shredding any remaining bits of the OS on motherboard change, but also just because I always felt by then that Windows would be creaking a bit and could do with throwing away and installing anew. Things are way more resilient now.

    Amusingly the VR machine that this was intended for is now back to square one, after my wife's machine got an impromptu upgrade and I realised her 500GB SATA ssd was not only going to be a bit performance limiting for a 5600X but was also very full. So it was her data that got transferred to the new SSD. I still can't install the my new game onto the PC downstairs, lol.

    Back to Amazon for me I guess

    Re: Corsair SSD software woes

    So, it seems that the WD store has a Black 750 1TB for £119, so thats a slightly faster, slightly larger, slightly cheaper drive that comes with non dross support software and a free game.

    I went for Outcast - Second Contact for the game.

    Delivery might take a week, but I'm OK with that.

    So ordered on Saturday, the package turned up on Thursday shipped from WD in the Netherlands.

    Guess I get to try the WD clone software at the weekend, but now I have a plan B
