This SSD Drive included a free copy of Norton Ghost 15 to help you transfer your data from the old hard drive to the SSD drive. You also get a cable in the box to allow you to connect the SSD to your laptop via a USB port.Samsung include proprietary software which I have not tried yet.
I had difficulty getting Norton Ghost to work. I tried it twice and still could not get the drive to boot after creating a copy of my old hard drive.In the end I downloaded free addition of XXclone.exe and this software was easier to use and understand and did the job first time, although I had to use a windows repair CD which I made from the old hard drive using the windows 7 installation I was coping to the new SSD.This fixed a boot issue. After this I was up and running. The new SSD is a lot faster and my windows scores the drive at 7.6 where as the old drive scored 5.9 so a marked difference hear.Windows now scores my laptop like this Processor 7.1, memory 7.1, graphics for Aero 6.4, gaming 3D graphics 6.4 and finally SSD drive 7.6.Samsung SSD 830 2.5inch SATA III 6GBps 256GB Notebook Accessory Kit with Free Norton Ghost 15
One last issue was my order did not arrive and I had to contact Amazon who sent me a replacement swiftly, customer service was excellent through the whole process. I believe the first drive was either lost in the post or stolen take your pick!I worked in a Royal Mail sorting office some years ago and there were cameras everywhere and they weren't there for fun.
