Hello.
I am trying to clone my HDD to my SSD 860 EVO 2.5" SATA III 1TB but it shows me an error at the very end (99% of the process). The error code is "-00001[ffffffff]". Can somebody help me with this issue?
My laptop is a Lenovo Y700 Series.

Hello, @izephyr 

1. I am using the "Data Migration Software" that Samsung offers.

2. I haven't tried another software for this operation. Do you suggest trying another one?

3. For my HDD it is 1 TB, same for the SSD (1 TB). However, I am trying to clone around 400 GB from my HDD to my SSD.

 

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi have you tried a chkdsk /f in command prompt to check the HDD to see if there are any errors on the disk?

I tried using a different software for this matter and it worked 100%.

 

Samsung Data Migration Software seems to be poorly programmed since I read a lot of reviews from people having problems with this software.

 

I even tried to reach tech support and this was their answer "Unfortunately you would have to figure out within your Operating System what may be providing you this read permission issue." Which makes me think that they do not care at all as they stated that this was my own personal problem.

 

I used Macrium Reflect 7 and it worked perfectly fine. No problems.

 

I DO NOT recommend using the Samsung Data Migration Tool since it is terrible. You better use the Macrium Reflect 7.

If you are using Samsung data migration software to clone HDD to Samsung SSD drive and fail, you can try another different SSD cloning software like AOMEI software, which i used and feel great.
