  1. Can someone please help me with my issue. I am trying to migrate over 2 HDD to this new 1 TB Samsung EVO 840 SSD. The thing is programs and stuff are on 1 HDD and Windows 7 OS is on another HDD. How can I put them together on one SSD? My computer is currently setup like so- (C: ) - 1 TB HDD where programs are installed (D: ) - BluRay drive (E: ) - 2TB HDD for files (F: ) - 100GB HDD where Win 7 is installed / system (G: ) - 1TB HDD for files I would like to migrate my C: and F: drives into the one 1 TB SSD I bought. When using the migration software, I was only able to figure out how to migrate my C drive and not F as well. Can someone help me figure out how two migrate 2 HDD into 1 SSD? Ex: (C: ) - 1 TB SSD Win7 and programs (D: ) - BluRay drive (E: ) - 2TB HDD for files (F: ) - 100GB HDD for files (G: ) - 1TB HDD for files (H: ) - 1TB HDD for files email:
  2. Okay I am so new at computer technology so please bear with me because i am just learning. I was attempting to download linux on my Acer aspire V5 and was running into problems getting the correct software to run a dual boot system and installing linux in the correct location and drive to be able to run a dual boot system. I have a feeling that this is a little off topic for this fourm, but i really need help. In Disk Management when i right click the storage space on "Disk 0" to delete volume the only option i get is "help" (See picture). The only time i get the normal option menu is for the Acer (C;) storage and the 300MB of health storage. I can not edit this volume either with the exception of shinking the vol of Acer (C:). Am i supposed to have this many drives listed? Well i know they are not actual hard drives but i don't know what they are called. None of them take up much space on my hard drive, but one of them does take up 15.5 GB of memory but that is nothing big. As of rite now i linux is on my CD-ROM 1, is that bad if i plan on installing linux as a dual boot OS? Any info on where those volume Partitions could have come from, how to make it so i can delete them to increase my Acer(C:) partition, or if the setup i have now will prevent me from using Linux as a dual boot OS is greatly appreciated! Sorry about not being too informed on the topic Oh and also i do have a thumb drive plugged in while the screenshot was taken, it is Disk 1 (E:) so just ignore that
  3. Hi, I run Windows 7 Pro SP-1 64-Bit with a ASRock P67 PRO3 (B3) MoBo that has a UEFI BIOS. I have: EaseUS Partition Master Pro v9.2.2 EaseUS Partition Wizard Home v8.1.1 Acronis Disk Director 11 Home Acronis True Image 2014 My C, D and E partitions are on a 120 GB NTFS SSD with a MBR. I installed Windows 7 on a pre-partitioned SSD so no hidden "System Partition". I installed a Toshiba PH3200U-1I72 2TB HDD that is Advanced Format 512e and is properly "Aligned" using the Toshiba provided utility. The PH3200U-1I72 is used as storage only on partitions "F" thru "M" set as MBR and working perfectly as below: F is 1.7 TB's Set As NTFS G is 1 GB's Set As Fat32 H is 5 GB's Set As Fat32 I is 4 GB's Set As NTFS J is 30 GB's Set As Fat32 K is 20 GB's Set As Fat32 L is 50 GB's Set As Fat32 M is 50 GB's Set As Fat32 I bought a Toshiba PH3300U-1I72 3TB HDD to replace the 2TB. I know that 3TBers can't utilize the full capacity in MBR, and must be set as GPT to do so. I use Norton's Ghost weekly and it has issues with GPT. I proceeded to contact various partitioning/cloning software companies to see if their products could be used in place of Ghost. The exchange below is between TeraByte Unlimited and me: TBU: "If your new drive uses 4K sector sizes you wouldn't need to have a GPT." Me: Please elaborate. BTW, This is what my present Toshiba 2TB looks like (Near the bottom): TBU: If you expose the 4K sector size and not the emulated normal 512 byte sector size, you can use an MBR and use the entire space (up to 16TiB). 0xFFFFFFFF*512=2,199,023,255,040 0xFFFFFFFF*4096=17,592,186,040,320 Me: With what software and what is the procedure to go about doing this? Can it be done via a Bootable CD or must it be done in Windows with just my SSD and empty 3TB connected? TBU: It would be a drive feature/option, typically using a jumper. The BIOS would also have to support the larger sizes too so it doesn't crash reading larger sectors, a modern BIOS should be able to handle it. My hunt for answers from Toshiba is a lost cause as their support is a TOTAL joke and does NOT offer E-Mail support. Soooooooooo, I'm here to find out if this "exposing the 4K sector size" can, indeed, be done to my PH3300U-1I72, and if so, EXACTLY how to go about doing it. Thanks in advance for any help you can be. Big Al
