Very difficult to even get it cloned and had to change passwords every time i rebooted. Wd software is crippled acronis sw.
After wasting more than half a day trying to clone my usb 3 ssd to the wd disk on my motherboard, it finally worked - sort of worked. After it cloned the m.2 disk, i had to change my password at least 11 times to ever get logged into my windows 10 pro software. Now outlook doesn't work anymore and says to go delete the .Ost files of which there are about twenty of them. And when i tried to continue to write this review using microsoft word (the 2016 version), i had to wait a few seconds between each keystroke for the computer to catch up - ultra slow motion. Earlier today i used macrium reflect to clone my samsung evo ssd and it was about a million time faster to type in word. I was planning to do a comparison using memtest. My neck is hurting so much, i don't want to touch this wd ssd again. I have no idea what that special western digital edition of acronis did to my installations, but it was just agonizing. I thought i would never get it to work again. I don't know why it kept making me change my password so many times after i finally got to the login screen. I supposed the wd m.2 ssd works, but it appears i will have to find a way to wipe the m.2 ssd and start over with a clean install, which is nearly impossible with an m.2 ssd on the motherboard. It isn't like you can pull it out and mount it in a usb adapter of some kind. It has to be done in-situ. I've had to do hot m.2 ssd swaps, which i don't like to do, but it is the only way to wipe an m.2 ssd unless somebody else knows how to boot up with a usb ssd and the m.2 ssd not try to take over. I am really not pleased with the clone software and it messed up outlook somehow. I'm open to solutions. I am pretty good at this sort of thing normally. I've cloned m.2 samsung drives at least 5 times without any issue using an older version of macrium reflect. The new version doesn't work so well because i can't ever get the computer to boot at all.I have two desktop computers with the same asrock z97 extreme6 lga 1150 intel z97 hdmi sata 6gb/s usb 3.0 atx intel motherboard. I started with a samsung 960 evo m.2 ssd in my motherboard with an intel i7 4790k cpu running at 4500 mhz.I have an intel xenon cpu and the prior version samsung m.2 ssd in my wife?€™s computer with the same motherboard. I intended to start with a regular usb 3 ssd and then clone it to each respective motherboard, but things went wrong and i never quite got around to installing the operating system directly onto the m.2 ssd until today. But that means i have to reinstall a lot of software. Unfortunately, i can?€™t do much with the extreme pain that has virtually crippled me with neck pain from being rammed by a driver driving the wrong direction and of course, he just drove off leaving me in misery. I have to do things in stages and it takes a long time because my never-ending extreme pain just kills my efficiency and eventually it will kill me, too.Both motherboards have the asrock ultra m.2 gen3 x4 32gbps socket for maximum throughput. I tried to use the macrium cloning software today and while it apparently cloned my usb 3 ssd, i can?€™t get the operating system to ever boot up. I can use my windows 10 pro installation disk and install the operating system directly to the motherboard, but i don?€™t want to reinstall all the software. I downloaded the wd acronis software and it will not install unless i have the wd m.2 ssd mounted on my motherboard. I?€™m not a fan of acronis software from past experience, which is why i want to use the macrium software that isn?€™t restricted. I am totally disgusted. I just hope my original usb ssd still works.
