    I suppose the longevity of SSDs is still unknown. Based on Kingston's toolkit my drive should last 20+ years yet. However, having said that, how do you restore your system to a new drive? On another SSD I keep a weekly Paragon image. On one partition on a USB 3 external HD I keep a weekly W7 image and on the other partition on that drive an AX64 image and snapshots. These are all compressed though and not true clones, correct? Paragon, AX64 are programs I would need to use to do restores anyway, correct? I have the boot media from both as well as the W7 Sp1 OEM disc but that can only be used on one PC. I really have no clue how to recover from a total HD failure and then migration to a new HD. Thank you!

    ratchet,

    A SSD restore is basically the same as restoring to a new HD. Can you post a screenshot of Disk Management as that will give us an idea of any gotchas.

    Easy. No gotchas. Just replace Disk 0 and restore your image.
