    I have a 906GB HDD with 215GB used. I have purchased a Samsung 500GB SSD to clone the HDD partitions. After reading the v 7.2 manual cloning instructions some questions have me needing assistance.
    1. Will I have to modify the size of this HDD partition: will cloning only copy the 215GB being used - or will it try to copy the entire 906GB causing issues? My current HDD has three partitions a Dell Utility 32 MB;
    a Recovery NTFS Active 24.6 GB and the NTFS Primary 906GB - 215 used. I plan to copy all three.
    2. V 7.2 offers 5 cloning options - not sure which to select in the provided check boxes:
    >Intelligent sector copy (copies only file system sectors/clusters that are in use.)
    >Verify File System (ensures that there are no file system errors transferred to the clone)
    >Rapid Delta Clone (copies only file system differences between the clone source and the target)
    >Enable SSD Trim (enables the clone target to optimize the disk and enhanced SSD performance
    and longevity) -wondering if this would be necessary with a new SSD?
    >Forensic Sector Copy (copies every sector from the source to the target disk partition)

    Would be grateful for any suggestions/advice.

    Mary and Frank,

    You started this discussion four months ago and I can't see any progress. Are you planning to do anything?
