Great Piece Disk Cloning of Software: Macrium Reflect

I got a new laptop and needed to clone a drive.  I saw reports saying that older Samsung drive software doesn't work with the new mk 2 SSD drives.  So I read a few recommendations for Macrium Reflect and gave it a whirl.

I cloned my 7200 RPM drive to my new SSD (including copying some hidden partitions just to be safe).  Went to the bios, changed to the boot order, and the SSD booted right up.  Took about 45 minutes.  I didn't have to hassle with boot sector / partial re-install of Windows 10 either.

Highly recommended piece of software.  I just used the free version, but the other versions can do all sorts of things like backup restores, imaging, and get this...into dissimilar hardware.
