    OS on HDD and Apps or Games on SSD


    I am so tired following lot of tutorials to migrate os from hdd to ssd,but all my ways ended with fail,i dont know what my mistake.
    I decide to keep os in current hdd and intall apps and game to ssd.

    Really need help,,
    Thank you very much.

    It should be other way around, OS on SSD and programs/games installed on HDD if SSD is too small to hold them all. Like this it's not likely you will see any improvements.
    Did you try to install Windows on the SSD instead of just trying migrate ? Some SSDs come with own migration programs, like Samsung 840/850. It may be more work but results are much better with fresh windows on SSD.

    I always use Macrium Reflect for things like that. Haven't missed a beat with it.
