A solid-state drive (SSD), sometimes called a solid-state disk or electronic disk, is a data storage device that uses integrated circuit assemblies as memory to store data persistently. SSD technology uses electronic interfaces compatible with traditional block I/O hard disk drives. SSDs do not employ any moving mechanical components, which distinguishes them from traditional magnetic disks such as hard disk drives (HDDs) or floppy disk, which are electromechanical devices containing spinning disks and movable read/write heads.
Compared to electromechanical disks, SSDs are typically less susceptible to physical shock, are silent, and have lower access time and latency, but are, at present market prices, more expensive per unit of storage.
As we know, hardware price goes down every day, more an more people begin to use SSD drives. It cannot be better if you can migrate Operating System and data from old hardware without reinstalling or reconfiguration. It'll save much of your precious time.
Before doing this, we suggest you check and make "partition alignment", otherwise, you'll you're sacrifice performance with misaligned partitions.
Step1, start Partition Assistant and you'll see the disk partition layout, click "Migrate OS to SSD or HDD" on left "Wizards" console to launch the wizard.
Step2, select the target SSD or another hard disk drive.
Step3, modify the target disk partition details, to change the partition size, you may drag left or right border or specify the partition size directly.
To ensure target disk bootable, we suggest you shut down the computer and follow the steps in the note.
Step4, click "Finish" and back to main window, press "Apply" button on top left to proceed. There is an option to shut down computer after you press this button.
This operation requires rebooting to proceed.
