    Hello, I am using Paragon v 10.0 I have a 1 TB WD drive that is my current OS drive. I am trying to copy / migrate to the new SSD 80 gig drive.

    When I go through the "Copy Hard Disk..." wizard, everything works well until I get the the point where I click the "Check" Icon. The system tells me it needs to reboot to complete the operation, I click YES. When the system reboots it comes to a screen that says "Loading boot sector... booting..."

    And the system HANGS...

    The disk copy operation never happens...

    Is this some error in the program - or is it my bioso_O Or What...

    Why can't I copy my C disko_O

    Any help is appreciated.

    I just did this iusing 2011, worth the upgrade. Took longer to uninistall old versions and products and install 2011.

    Hard Disk Manager 2011 Suite:

    NEW > Move any Windows OS since XP from a regular hard disk to a fast SSD even of a smaller capacity.

    I was coming from 150GB (WD 10K VR) that was using 65GB in total, I cleaned out temp files, restore points, as the SSD is 83.6GB after formatting.

    The progress seemed to be stuck or showing 1.xx (minutes? hours?) but actually took more like 10-15 minutes. Then told me to reset the BIOS boot manager when done (I also pulled the old boot drive, and put the SSD on same SATA #0 port ID).

    Highly recommend.

    With Hard Disk Manager 2011 prof, I moved from a 120GB SATA HDD to 128GB SATA SSD of C-drive and it worked no problem.

    Now I did have driver issues after booting into windows but thats because I needed to update the drivers from old drive to SSD drivers. That's more of a windows issue.
