Hi I have just installed a 240gb SSD in the optical bay and eventually got it formatted etc so all good to go...or so i thought Tried to 'clone' the HDD onto the SSD but getting weird issues, the software acronis seems to work ok but i get the following issues HDD is 1TB and when I check on windows its has about 550GB of info on it with OS/ windows 8 and a lot of music and videos !! Now I'm looking to just transfer the OS and windows 8 onto the SSD in the hope that , they will then run quicker, so i go into acronis and s= clone, pick the drive from - BUT wait it shows the drive as having 890GB of info on it ( not the 550gb windows shows ) I know there can be hidden files but seriusly that large ?? so I take out / deselect my music and video files which come to 450gb which should leave about 100gb in reality being cloned onto the SSD, BUT the esytem still thinks its tryig to send over about 500gb onto the 240gb SSD and rejects it saysing not enough disk space !! why is acronis shoiwng 890GB disk size for HDD when windows and file manager and all other systems showing 550GB How do i get it to just copy the OS and windows 8 onto the SSD so i can get quicker boot times ??
