    I've been trying out Paragon Migrate to 3TB and was unsuccessful.

    I'm using 3x1 TB drives at RAID0 on NVIDIA :thumbd: MediaShield and wanted to copy a 64GB Windows 7 x64 partition from another 400 GB drive.

    First of all I'm not sure "Migrate to 3TB" is a good name. What if I'd like to migrate to 4TB? And what's really the difference between Paragon Migrate to 3TB and Paragon Drive Copy Express? They both copy partitions so why not merge them? :)

    When migrating to the 3 TB drive I'd like to keep the Windows partition at 64 GB so I uncheck "Copy data and resize partitions proportionally". After clicking Next I get and error message saying I'm out of disk space which of course is ridiculous since I got 3 TB free :rolleyes:

    I would prefer a textbox to the slider when selecting destination disk partitions size (or perhaps both?). With the slider it's impossible to configure a partition like 64 GB.

    "Time remaining" at the "Copying the hard disk" window is not accurate but what's worse is that "Time elapsed" also stalled for long periods which would drive impatient users to drastic measures.

    The worst part was that after booting up the new 3 TB drive I'm not allowed to create any partition on the unallocated 2.7 TB space. I tried creating a 2.7 TB and 100 MB partition but always get "The parameter is incorrect" error message.

    In the event log I get two different errors several times. One "Port driver for disk 0 failed ATA IDENTIFY command." and one "Unexpected failure. Error code: 1@01010003".

    1) It would be great to get LOGs of migration.
    By the way, what version of Migrate to 3TB did you use? Update was released recently and should contacin some bugfixing. Build number is 10.0.16.12621

    Logs: "PWLOG.TXT", "STUBACT.LOG", "BioNTlog.TXT" in "C:\Program Files\Paragon Software\[Program Name]\Program"

    2) GPT Loader driver which is installed together with Migrate to 3TB doesn't support RAIDS.
    http://www.paragon-software.com/technologies/components/gpt-loader/win7.html

    This warning should be added for Migrate to 3TB also.

    So you will not be able to create new partition beyond the 2.2TB limit.
