Thank you for so detailed explanation. I think I would prefer not to clone the old hard drive, but instead install Win10 in the new SSD. But since I am a novice in installing OS, I am now figuring out how I may install Win10 without buying a new Win10 license (for I only have the license key of Win7 and upgraded it to Win10). I am now asking this in the Microsoft community. A few more questions about the SSD: (1) Now the SSD does not appear in the file manager (though it is recognized indeed). How it be readable in the file manager? (2) I have heard about "SSD partition 4K alignment ". Is it necessary to do it for a good performance of SSD? How to do it? Can it be done after the Win10 is installed? Thanks a lot again.

I bought an Crucial MX500 250 GB SSD, and plugged it onto my PC. (I had upgraded the OS of my PC from Win 7 to Win 10 early in this year.) When I used the Clone Disk Wizard to clone my HDD (Drive C, the only one in my PC) to SSD, a message appears which says "Some partitions contain errors and can be imaged only sector-by-sector. It is recommended that you exit Acronis True Image and check the partitions with your system's disk-checking tools." I chose to proceed anyway. Then another message appears which says "Cannot complete the cloning. The selected partition(s) on the source drive cannot be resized to fit a smaller drive because the source drive uses an unsupported or broken file system." May I know how I can fix this problem? I have checked my Drive C by using the Error Checking tool in Windows, and the report says it has no error. (This Drive C has a capacity of 450 GB but I have only used 70 GB. It has no partition.)
