I'm replacing my internal HDD with a new SSD I bought. I'm going to connect the new SSD first via USB to SATA cable, perform the clone process, then install the new SSD.
Do I need to format or prepare the blank new SSD first before I clone it? Or will Macrium do all of this for me automatically? This is also just a secondary data drive, not my boot drive.
Also, are the default options that are checked all OK to have when doing this? It has intelligent copy with all 3 options, verify file system, rapid delta, and SSD trim enabled by default. So my plan is just to copy over the partitions just as they are on my HDD to the SSD, as they are both 1Tb. The internal HDD has a 16mb unformatted primary partition and then the Data D: drive partition with all of my data on it.
Thanks for any feedback! Hopefully it's that simple and I can just run the clone operation using the default operations and exact partitions.
