Used Acronis to Clone my Sys drive to a SSD -- WOW


Recommended Posts

Just finished using Acronis to Clone my System drive in my Main Desktop (Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R) to a Crucial M4 256GB SSD that I had been using elsewhere.


What a difference this has made!! Boot times and access times are fantastic!


My original Sys Drive was a WD Black WD1002FAEX but the M4 is a whole new ball game!


Acronis was pretty easy to use -- I just did the Automatic settings -- let it run and do it's thing -- then all I had to do was shut down the desktop, open it up, pull out the old WD and move the SATA wire connections.


The GSATA III ports on the X58A-UD3R aren't quite as fast as the Intel SATA III ports on newer MB's -- but they're still pretty fast in my estimate.


I used Acronis 2012 True Image Home with the Plus Pack.


Here's my ATTO of my performance Improvement:




My Write speeds are about double while my Read speeds have improved by nearly a factor of 4.

Nice, congrats on the re-purpose. It is tough to use anything else once you ran an SSD.

My experience with Acronis Disk Cloning is like yours - it works well. The backup functionality on the hand; well, don't get me started. :angry:
