Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

           As an extension to some currently open post, I wish to ask the following question:  How can I use Samsung Data Migration software to clone a 500GB drive to a 1TB Samsung Solid State Drive?  I have an extra internal hard drive bay with a SATA connector on this Acer Aspire V3- 731-4473 laptop which I want to use for interfacing the blank 1TB Samsung Solid State Drive.  Once the cloning process is complete, I wish to swap out the drives and boot up from the newly cloned 1TB Samsung Solid State Drive.  I assume the Samsung Data Migration software will create a bootable USB flash drive with self-explanatory options to make all of this possible, but, I am not sure it will be that simple.  

            In closing, I believe the answer to this question will help provide closure not only to this question but, to some currently open post as well.  So far, this has turned out to be a huge learning experience for me.  

            Thanks in advance for any feedback given here.  I look forward to reviewing everyone's suggestions.  

            George
