Ready to upgrade to a new Solid State Drive (SSD)? Paragon’s Migrate OS to SSD is just what you need. Our handy intuitive wizard performs fast and safe Windows migrations to new storage devices (HDD or SSD) and even downsizes to smaller capacity drives, thanks to advanced new data exclusion capabilities. You can transfer a live system with no impact to your work, and have your partitions automatically aligned in the process if needed.
Challenges of Windows OS Migration
Challenge 1. Windows migration from HDD to a smaller SSD Migrating software to outside storage devices can be a slow and painful process to the unprepared. Hard disk drives (HDD) double in capacity every two years - giving software developers lots of room for developing technology which is often more complicated and space-consuming. To keep up with burgeoning software, users may think they are simply doomed to regular hardware upgrades involving the purchase of a new drive, and the headaches that go along with re-installing OSs and applications. Fortunately, there's a way to save time and effort by using special migration tools. Many of these tools performed well when migrating to larger drives, that is - until solid state drives (SSD) appeared on the scene. The latest SSDs do not boast high capacity, but rather smaller size and faster processing speeds over regular hard drives. Plus, they are completely indifferent to mechanical impact, a feature crucial for mobile computers. These benefits are leading more and more users to consider migrating their OS to SSDs to get the most out of their systems. The main obstacle users are faced with is the modest capacity of SSDs for the price. So, how do you migrate an OS and hundreds of gigabytes of data on one huge volume to a SSD drive of 80-128GB? Up until now, the only solution was to re-partition the HDD first, and then perform the migration using a special utility to separate the system and data, a process which risked data loss and was quite time consuming.
Challenge 2. 64-bit Windows migration configured to the uEFI boot mode Introduced back in 2005 by Intel to lift restrictions of the old MBR (Master Boot Record) and PC BIOS (Basic Input/Output System), uEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) is now a recommended platform for new 64-bit Windows 8 computers. And the reason is easy to catch – besides other unique features impossible for the traditional tandem of BIOS+MBR, only a uEFI-based platform enables to accommodate Windows OS on a partition larger than 2.2TB. Despite all uEFI advantages however, it has one quite naughty issue: A pretty standard operation with a bootable device for instance involving its connection to another SATA port results in unbootable Windows. You’ll get the same result if trying to boot from a cloned system hard disk. All these problems originate from the way uEFI+GPT bundle is organized. Microsoft provides how-to guides to tackle this type of problems, but they demand a great deal of experience from the user, involving the use of the cmd, diskpart and bcdedit tools.
A New Solution from Paragon
Paragon Software has a better way. By developing a unique technology that transfers Windows (any version since XP) to a smaller capacity disk in a single operation, you can now simply and efficiently migrate Windows OS from a high capacity HDD to a speedy new SSD. Moreover, with the support of the uEFI/GPT configurations, you don’t have to bother about any boot issues.
What makes our technology work is a handy intuitive wizard called Migrate OS to SSD. Here’s how it works:
