I upgraded from an old ‘spinner’ hard drive to an SSD hard drive … the software i used for ‘cloning’ … there were 2 options
Copy Disk Quickly …which copies all data and OS system files
Sector-by-Sector … same as above, but does it sector by sector
I chose “Copy Disk Quickly” and the process of upgrading my old spinner hard drive to an SSD hard drive when smoothly without any issues … was up and running with my OS and all my programs and data quickly
Oh, and the SSD was a larger capacity and was able to use the entire available space on the SSD after cloning the old spinner.
I still don’t understand why people use sector cloning ? … any bad sectors on a hard drive, it will clone them … takes forever to clone … and then there’s the sector mis-match errors (as you’ve discovered)
Also, regarding the “BIOS” error above … you’ll most prob need to enable UFEI if your PC supports it or Legacy BIOS mode.
