Just a heads up - Paragon Migrate OS to SSD 4.0 is on sale today at BitsDuJour for $9.95, which is 1/2 the normal price.

Typically when you’re migrating from an HDD to an SSD, you’re moving from a larger disk to a smaller disk, which means your partitions will have to be resized. 
Disk partitioning is more and more complex these days, particularly with UEFI firmwares coming to the fore.  So cloning from HDD to SSD is not a trivial thing, and I’ve recently experienced the difficulties that can be encountered

I haven’t used Paragon Migrate OS to SSD myself, but I was struck by the following comment in a MaximumPC thread:

“It’s easy to clone a drive in a non-UEFI environment, but you have to use special tools to replace the system drive on a PC that boots with UEFI. So far, the only tool I’ve found that works is Paragon Software’s Migrate OS to SSD (which also works for SSD-to-SSD replacements as well as when moving from HD to SSD). Costs $20 and worth every penny!”

thinking I’ll spring for the $10 myself ...

I used the Paragon software (albeit version 3.x) to move the Windows systems on 2 notebooks to (smaller) SSDs. Everything went smoothly and as expected.
I’d say that $10 is money well spent (I have no connections to Paragon).
