Migrate easy 7 locks up
I am running migrate easy on an XP system. During the cloning process the software seems to freeze up between 27% and 66%. no error messages are displayed and unless i hit the reset button nothing will change
Are you starting ME from within Windows or from the CD?
If your PC is a brand name, what brand and model?
How do you have your disks set up?
Interesting thing happened, I was trying to copy a 100 GB drive on to a 80 GB drive. the windows install used only 57.9 of the 100 GB drive so i thought that this would fit on a 80 GB drive. When I tried the same thing with a spare 160 GB drive It worked fine. I use cloning software for backing up my os rather than upgrading to a larger drive so i did not think that the destnation drive had to be the same size or larger. I will pay attention to this in the future.
The drives don't have to be the same size. Perhaps the 80Gb drive has some corrupted sectors, ME won't run if it thinks there is a problem with one of the drives.
Run chkdsk /r on the 80 GB drive and see if any errors are corrected.
