CLONE FAIL FAIL FAIL
So I have a Haswell i7 rig (GTX 780) with Platinum PSU etc etc... W8.1 Pro (and a few other W8.1 PC`s I tried the clone op with also)........
.... and on the SSD to clone in question, it is a Samsung EVO 250Gb SSD. It seems to work perfect.
But its getting near full~ish.... (30Gb spare)....
... so I bought a Samsung EVO VNAND 500Gb.... (twice the capacity) and thought an easy clone was in store....
(I also have some additional drives I have just disconnected for the Clone op [as the Samsung clone software was being stupid [trying to get me to clone my documents drive to my new SSD]). With or without the other drives connected, it FAILS, FAILS, FAILS.
So; when I try to clone, It gets to about 33% cloned, and then fails.
Time after time.
Recent ERROR MESSAGE is:- "Failed to retrieve source information 205500(0322bc)"
I tried to clone the SSD to SSD on a CLONE machine/Box. A FAIL
I tried to clone using Macrium Reflect. A FAIL
I tried to clone using EASEUS. A FAIL.
I tried them all a few times including the SAMSUNG CLONE Software.
FAIL FAIL FAIL FAIL FAIL
What am I doing wrong?
Is there a problem with the 250Gb SSD I don`t know about (I am using this PC with it in now)...
Or will a SAMSUNG EVO not clone to a SAMSUNG VNAND ?
Do I have to try everything including disabling features such as RAPID MODE? And Disable Performance and everything?
I have been a dozen hours trying to do this simple task.
I tired to contact SAMSUNG; but as I bought the SSD`s from Amazon, their help website gives me the brush off.
And I dont want to send them back; as they both work (I installed a bare W8.1 onto the VNAND and it ran great [But I have thousands of files and links to the other hard drives; and programs etc etc etc and it would take me a month of part-time work to get them all linked properly... so I PREFER To CLONE.
It should be easy.... so....
