    Or
    Try this utility, I have cloned with this a while ago: AOMEI Windows Backup, Cloning, and Recovery Software
    Will try that. Thank you.

    Will Google `Win PE` as I do not know if that is part of Macrium or Part of Windows.
    It's from Macrium, I have attached the links for instructions:
    v5: How to create a disk image (Backup, Image, v5)
    Create a Windows PE Rescue Environment
    Its a repeat, I know...

    "Macrium Reflect image....

    and part way through... this message... ;-

    "Backup aborted! - Failed to Create Volume Snapshot. Result Code: 0x80042306"

    Will look at Aomei... but have no reason to think it will be any better. that said; I have just done a chkdsk /f reboot. Will try Samsung emigrate (Data Migration) again...
    I had disconnected my printers & scanner and everything else also.

    "Backup aborted! - Failed to Create Volume Snapshot. Result Code: 0x80042306"
    It's a VSS error.

    So; you are saying this otherwise perfect Samsung EVO SSD; with super fast scores on Magician software (and SSD benchmark) which is relatively hardly used (I only have Windows 8 and documents [with a few games on a WD Black drive]) in it in a cool running environment) has internal errors after only 3-months relatively light use?

    Sheesh...

    Damn n blast..

    Can I half clone (partitions) and try and copy windows C Drive files across to the new 500Gb V-Nand SSD ?



    It did say "Broken pipe" during a few attempts in one of the Clone programs though.... Not sure what it meant. I assumed a read error; and the Samsung software 'Defragment' equivalent would by-pass any small issue of a tiny sector misread... or...

    EDIT.......
    I did a printout of the error.

    ERROR; COM call *m_pVssObject->BackupComplete(&pAsync)* failed.
    - Returned HRESULT = 0x80042301
    - Error text: VSS_E_BAD_STATE

    P.S.
    Now I learned that a VSS error is not a broken internal organ of anything (or is it), would it be applicable to use CCleaner to get rid of any dross in Windows 8.1 ??

    Or is CCleaner still out of favor?

    Heck; maybe I should try uninstall Windows 'SHELL' Program for W8.1 (the one that makes windows 8 like windows 7); maybe thats the cause of the VSS error? Who knows... Its a Microsoft Mystery.

    Ccleaner is a good idea, also in disk cleanup clean out the WinSxS files by doing windows update cleanup. Also try turning system restore temporarily off -delete restore points(VSS files), and just for good measure (if turned on) delete page file. Then reboot and try migrating, cloning or imaginng. whichever you prefer or works.

    Had already deleted all the Restore points and page file. etc

    Am still in the middle of another attempt after doing a cmd 'reboot ' chkdsk /f ''.

    Feel a bit more hopeful about CCleaner if it fails. Thankx.

    You could also try this solution from Macrium:

    VSS Error: 0x80042306 - Volume Shadow Copy Error (VSS)

    could also be that system protection (system restore) is turned off on that drive

    Aomei software does contain a version of vss.dll (not sure if the same as windows version)
