We love hearing from our users, especially when Reflect has helped save someone’s bacon! Laurence describes his issues below:

Well, it seemed like a simple problem at first. Clone the 120GB HDD in my laptop to a Samsung 120GB SSD connected by USB so I could then swap the drives. But it wasn’t.

I killed a few hours using the Samsung software. The drive appeared to be cloned, I could see the files and folders and partitions, but when I inserted it in the laptop and changed the BIOS, it would immediately freeze on a text screen with just a blinking cursor.

Then I tried AOMEI for a few hours with no better result…

Then hours and hours with Partition Wizard MiniTool…

Then back to Samsung and back again to MiniTool…

Each one appeared to be okay but wouldn’t boot-and each one analyzed the others and said they were corrupt or incorrect.

Then I tried Macrium Reflect… and it worked the first time!! I was trying to get this done in time to get the upgrade to Windows 10 on the SSD, and I made it with five hours to spare.

Thank you, thank you, Macrium. Great program!
