Simply type OOLABS for both name and company, and paste JKD1-0SC3-V242-3L4H-1ZW3 into the License number field and you are good to go. We all know that there is nothing better than the word free!
When an HDD is duplicated to an SSD, the partitions need to be adapted and aligned to the structures of the SSD. If this does not occur, the SSD is simply overwritten with the information from the old HDD. Misalignment of the partition can result in a performance degradation of up to 50%! In addition, the life span of the SSD is shortened. Since you are now saving your data on the SSD, it will require more space than is normally necessary to delete and rewrite that data.
The O & O SSD Migration Kit automatically verifies that the target drive is an SSD. It realigns the parttions on the destination drive (the SSD) to mirror those of the source drive (the HDD) during the migration process. No data loss ensures that 100% of your SSD’s performance is available!
Migrations with the O & O SSD Migration Kit are reversible — the information on the source drive is not deleted. It is only made unrecognizable. Basic system requirements for utilizing the kit are 1 GB of ram and 30 MB of free disk space. This kit a great option for use with those SSD’s that do not come pre-packaged with their own migration software! Check it out at PC & Tech Authority.
