Samsung Data Migration Software (4.0) is for Samsung SSD only

For Clonezilla it's via a USB boot key, it's a little more complicated, a complete tutorial: https://www.malekal.com/clonezilla-tuto ... de-disque/

For Crucial:

Here is the SSD optimization part recommended by Crucial (light ...):

I have done this several times without any problem, to install SSDs on laptops, but not recently.
The last time, in 2015, I used a simple and basic trick: "DiskClone".

I don't think the choice of software is critical. In the worst case, as the destination disk is blank, if there are problems we can start all over with another software.

Ok and how long does it take each try do you think?

I have 1 TB to clone ... I tested rapidos with Acronis (certified by Crucial ...) and I have a warning message when choosing the source: apparently there are partitions that they do not know and it will therefore make a "hard" copy ... ie sector by sector ...

Also some say that cloning copies errors: my source disk has 1 reallocated sector ...

That is true ?

Uh this is your DiskClone: https://winworldpc.com/product/diskclone/10 ?

Quarterdeck DiskClone Extra Strength 1.0 (1998) (3.5-1.44mb) Extra Strength 1.0 English [x86] 5.21MB

5 Mb that's good ... but 1998 does that worry me a little anyway? : Cheesy:

3.5-1.44 MB does that mean you need 3.5 floppy disk of 1.44 MB? : Mrgreen: : Mrgreen: : Mrgreen: : Mrgreen:

Likely. A cloning is by definition a carbon copy of sectors. The software does not interpret anything at all. If it did not copy the errors, the destination disk would no longer be a clone.

This means that you will have to improve your skills in the art of using search engines.

I found my installation file: "DriveClone 11.10 - DCFree-11-GM-ML-20141022.exe"
And I find it there, version 2018:
https://telecharger.tomsguide.fr/DriveC ... 39964.html
Maybe there is even more recent, but 2018 is already all good.

Yes SixK, I don't doubt it but I was lazy ^^

Finally, I tried the easy way that Crucial offered.

This did the job in less than 3 hours ... which makes an average transfer rate close to 100 MB / s to process 1 TB ... so not bad!

Tomorrow I try to boot on it 8)

I used the home software (Samsung) for at least 6 SSDs (Always Samsung), it always worked the first time, without errors.

It is because it was certified and a little less boring to get started that I used (the 450 MB of Acronis is a complete suite of software in fact ... and since I have a crucial apparently I have the license that could be used for later ...) ... and I was amazed at the speed in fact (despite some unreadable sectors ... on old partitions that I no longer use so not very serious ... well we will see tomorrow if it boots or not! :D)

The Samsung also makes the copy under a boot menu?

I believe I had 3 or 4 reboots ...
