Will likely be upgrading my main SSD in the near future to something much larger as I'm using about 98% of the space.

 

What do you guys recommend for cloning software? I've never done this before and don't want to start from scratch this time.

are you using Windows 7?  Best bet might be to do the backup image restore onto the bigger drive via a USB, then expand the partition size to your liking:

probably works the same.  That backup image is essentially a proprietary Microsoft "iso" and if your "clone" failed, you'd have a backup on your USB :)

If you get the Samsung SSD 840 pro drive, it comes with the cloning software. Worked with Win 7 without a glitch for me.

Fast little bugger.
