Clone....ssd>ssd

Source disk connected via sata 3.
Destination disk connected via usb 3.

Crystal disk mark shows both disk with r/w speeds in the 500MB/s area.

Clone speed is 175/195MB/s.

Is this normal?

Task manager does not show any high numbers when the clone is running.

Much better than my last clone job. This work tends to test our patience.

This being a new machine and I'm forced to use usb for the output I did not know if what I was looking at for data rate was good or bad.

I can't help with speed but I've sometimes had bad luck cloning from one interface type to another where the copied drive won't work when installed. This had been with laptops and I don't know why. What I need to do create an image of the drive on a USB external, put the new bare drive in the laptop and restore the image to it. This may or may not be related to the cloning software but I use Acronis TI. Of course you probably checked the functionality of the clone already.

The first time I ran the clone and swapped the hdd for a cloned ssd that I just made it would not boot.

So I had to swap things back and bring up disk management.
That's were I noticed the 2 disk were different.

Deleted all the partitions on the ssd and reran the clone.
Now everything looked the same.

Did the swap out and it boots fine.

Being a novice to this usb stuff I did not know if my xfer speed was in the ball park or not.
