Everyday doings of a metropolitan techie: Stob's software diary


Still useless...?

Thoroughly agree with the Verity's report on the quality of the Samsung disk cloning s/w. I stuck a Samsung SSD in my PC a couple of years ago, and, forewarned by on-line comments about the utility's uselessness, installed a copy of Macrium Reflect as back-up. I tried Samsung's s/w first - it spent 45 mins saying "Cloning...", before eventually saying " Oh. Actually it appears I wasn't cloning after all..." (or something like that). Reflect took 75 minutes not saying anything, until finally saying "Finished", leaving a perfectly cloned SSD. Aghast that Samsung haven't fixed such a fundamental bug after 2 years. The Samsung SSD hardware, however, is brilliant.

Thumb Down

It gets worse...

Brilliant - installed the new version as recommended, and now it won't recognise my Samsung 850 Pro SSD system drive, even after a reboot. It recognises my ancient Samsung HDD, but states that it is "not supported".

Sounds like Samsung need to release v5.2 pronto.
