Upgrade question

Recommended Posts

I'm upgrading from an EVO 250 to a EVO 500.

My current SSD is setup with an Overprovisioning partition per Magician software size and recommendation.

I plan to clone my 250 SSD to my 500 SSD via USB before installatoon

Should I turn off the OP on my 250 first? Or will magician size the OP partition correctly on the new 500?

Thanks,

Bill

Good question, my guess is that it will ignore the OP but I don't know for sure, maybe someone else has tried this. I would however suggest you set the drive up clean rather than clone. It takes more time but usually nets better results.

Upgrade successful. Here's how it went.

Samsung Migration software does not copy the over provisioning partition.

So after the upgrade I had ton run Magician and setup the recommended OP size.

Only issue I had was setting up rapid mode.

I had to disable rapid mode, reboot, enable rapid mode and boot again.

Other than that, upgrading from a 250GB SSD to a 500GB SSD went well.
