How Long Does Samsung Data Migration Take?

Hi, I am trying to transfer about 90GB of data to a brand new Samsung SSD from an old HDD that was causing errors for my computer. And then replace the HDD with the SSD. I am using the Samsung Migration to clone HDD to SSD. It is said that SM would take no more than 3 hours, but it's been 13 hours since it started, and the clone is still in progress. Do you know how long Samsung Migration takes to clone a hard drive? Is it normal to take so long?

Samsung Data Migration(SDM) is specially designed to upgrade the existing hard drive to a new Samsung SSD. It is said that SDM can reach a speed of approximately 130MB/s.

However, how long it takes to clone a hard drive with SDM highly depends on the data size and your computer's speed. Generally speaking, 90GB of data can be cloned in 3 hours or less. Therefore, if your cloning process has been running for more than that, then something must have gone wrong.

We recommend you try EaseUS Disk Copy, an alternative to Samsung Migration. It is a powerful and reliable HDD/SSD cloning software that can clone data quickly and securely without data loss. By using EaseUS Disk Copy, you can easily and quickly clone your hard drive in just a few clicks. A 100GB hard drive will take roughly 17 minutes to copy if your cloning speed is 100MB/s.
