Ghost-HELP copying my HDD to new SSD

I bought a new Samsung SSD 830 drive to replace my HDD on my VAIO VGN-Z540 laptop.

Followed all instructions, installed Norton Ghost and to my surprise ERROR.

List of it:

-Error EC8F17B3: Cannot complete copying of (C:\) drive.

--Cannot copy source drive to destination location.

---Error E7C30010: Device \\.\PhysicalDrive3 cannot write 3036 sectors starting at LBA 31696.

----Error EBAB03F1: The system cannot find the file specified.

---Cannot copy source drive to destination location.

----Error E7C30010: Device \\.\PhysicalDrive3 cannot write 3036 sectors starting at LBA 31696.

-----Error EBAB03F1: The system cannot find the file specified.

What can I do to solve it?It's really a **bleep** that waiting to test my SSD I've this problem.

I'm not familiar with a NorthonGhost Data Migration Manual. We use the Ghost 15 userguide.

What have you done so far?

Re: Ghost-HELP copying my HDD to new SSD

This is a very difficult procedure and we should start from scratch.

How large is your HD?

How large is the Win7 partition?

How much Free Space is in the Win7 partition?

How large is your SSD?

Can you post a screenshot of Disk Management?

I think you may have bad sectors on the old drive.

Is that one of the reasons why your upgrading the drive, your having phsical problems with it?

I like Samsung's manual better than Symantec's. Nice pictures and seems well written.

Accepted Solution
