Hi!

Reading from this thread http://support.macrium.com/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=2935

I believe Macrium Reflect is ok to backup and restore a SSD partition to file and then back.

My situation is a little different.

I'm using Reflect to make images of my Windows 7 partition (a primary one) from a sata HDD and saving them as files to another HDD.

Now I would like to buy a Intel SSD and make that my boot disk.

Obviously I would like to restore the last up to date image of the OS onto the new SSD.

Is there something I should perform to guarantee the correct alignment ? Maybe I should create the partition(s) on the SSD in advance or can I simply restore the partition(s) from the images onto the unpartitioned SSD ?

Actually the partitions are more than one, but I suppose what is ok for the primary partition is ok for the others too.

Thank you


Luis

Hi

Thanks for your post. Windows 7 partitions are perfectly aligned for SSD and can be restored directly. However, if your SSD is smaller than your original disk then you will need to pre-create a partition on the SSD and use RoboRestore to restore your image. http://www.macrium.com/KB/KnowledgebaseArticle50012.aspx

Kind Regards
