Windows 10 clone with EZ Gig IV fails to boot, how to fix?

"I decided to clone my Windows 10, Build 10122 to an SSD with EZ Gig IV as I have done in the past with Vista and Windows 7 drives. So I can move Windows 10 from the WD hard drive to an OCZ SSD without having to start with a clean install. But unfortunately, it doesn't work for Windows 10. The error on boot says a file is missing and the drive is locked. Is there any way to fix this error or will I need to try an EZ Gig IV alternative software to do the OS transfer job?"
