Jones0610 Posted January 24, 2013 Share Posted January 24, 2013 I did read the sticky threads and looked in the forum for an answer. If it's here, I didn't see it. This is a basic Corsair SSD installation question. I'm planning on upgrading an older Pentium 4 PC to boot off of an SSD. If this exercise works out I will probably start converting everything to run off of an SSD. Typically, when I need to replace a boot drive, I use Clonezilla which works great if the target drive is equal to or larger than the source HDD. In this test case, the SSD will be considerably smaller than the HDD it will be replacing. Wondering if the Corsairs come with any sort of cloning or backup/restore software. I understand that the Samsung Pro line does. For a variety of reasons, I'd prefer to go with a Corsair product. I did read the backup/restore procedure in this forum which I guess would work ok but that seems like a very convoluted process compared to just firing up a cloning tool. I'm also somewhat concerned about the many threads I've seen on here regarding degraded SSD performance over time that seems to require backing up the SSD, erasing it and then restoring the backup. This gives the impression that SSD technology is not yet quite stable enough to convert to (hence my desire to do this test to see for myself how well SSDs work). I'd be very appreciative of any feedback especially from anyone who does this sort of thing all the time. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
