My System Specs

Default Clone SSD onto another SSD?

20 days ago, I did a clean install of Windows 7 onto my Crucial M4. Then Newegg had Samsung 840 PRO 128GB for $99 + tax, so I bought myself a couple. Can I clone my current Windows installation from my Crucial M4 and use it on the Samsung 840 PRO? I know it's recommended not to clone from HDD to SSD due to alignment issues, but SSD to SSD should be fine, right?

Yes, I've done it twice migrating from 60GB to 100GB to 240GB SSD's.

SHould be good. I've done a half dozen clones from HDD to SSD without fail, as well as SSD to SSD.
