M550 1TB drive fails to copy

Hi everyone,

 

I'm in the middle of upgrading from a 512GB M4 to a 1TB M550 and having nothing but problems.

 

First of all - the CD which came with the drive was blank (not a problem as I have the update software from the previous install)

 

When i connect the drive to the laptop (Sony Viao VPCF23P1E), I get the device recognised ping but when I try the cloning procedure, i get almost complete drive errors. I tried it the first time and it took 2 days and then reported a corrupt copy! If I try to repeat the cloning procedure, it gives me 98%(ish) cloning errors. 

 

I looked at some of the posts n the forums and have checked that the IDE ATA/ATAPI drivers are up to date and would like some help please at the moment, I've bought a £400 brick

Hi, what is your Windows version? If it is Windows 7 make sure you have Service Pack 1 installed. Could you confirm what is the version of your storage driver version? I would probably try the newest 12.9.0.1001 for that laptop.

Its Windows 7 - SP1 installed and fully updated.  

 

I have updated the SATA AHCI drivers to the latest versionsbefore I tried the upgrade along with a full windows update to make sure that there were no unpleasant surprised waiting for me

Could you please:

- post your data from AS SSD Benchmark (Edit -> Copy option, you don't have to run the benchmark) - for your current M4 installation you are trying to clone

- post your data from CrystalDiskInfo (Edit -> Copy option, just please remove drive's serial number) - for your new M550

- just to be sure please check and post the current driver version with Device manager -> IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers -> right click on the selected controller -> Properties -> Driver tab

Re: M550 1TB drive fails to copy

in reply to BrianMarch

Well the first thing that comes to attention is the storage driver. The one you are using is 3 years old, where did you get it? :smileywink: Using device manager you could try to update it to the one from the begining of the thread, 12.9.0.1001.

 

AS SSD Benchmark seems to show the partition offset is about 18GB. That can probably indicate some hidden recovery partition from Sony and that itself can make the cloning process tricky I guess. It is possible you should use different cloning software or consult the cloning procedure with Sony's support or on some forums maybe. 

 

First, I would try the driver update.

Re: M550 1TB drive fails to copy

Hi,

 

I've updated the storage driver but still no joy. The clone procedure still reports almost complete (99% write errors) when I try it.

 

Looking at the diagnostics, it suggests that the new drive is ok but for some reason it wont clone. What cloning software would you recommend?

Re: M550 1TB drive fails to copy

in reply to BrianMarch

Unfortunately I will not be very helpful with that. I prefer clean installations. I am not a big fan of clones since I have had moderate cloning results in the past however Acronis True Image HD seems to work pretty well for me. Also some forum users were reporting good results with free Macrium Reflect.

But your cloning should be quite easy to do since you are trying to copy smaller drive to the larger one. I think I would try different USB enclosure too. By the way - what cloning software are were you using for your unsuccessful clone attempts? Maybe there is something wrong with cloning options?

I was using the software packaged with the drive, so I would assume that it should work well enough...

Re: M550 1TB drive fails to copy

in reply to BrianMarch

I tried another copy and for some reason it worked - wierd. The only thing I did differently was to close Dropbox.

 

Thanks for all your help
