    I have a Dell 7567 with the 1tb HDD.

    I added a Crucial MX500-500gb-SSD. I used Acronis and cloned from my HDD to the SSD. It shows up in BIOS and device manager, but under volume in device manager, it doesn't show that it is an active drive and nothing is on it. The SSD does not show up in This PC and in disk manager it shows disk 1 partion 1 and disk 0 partition 0. The SSD is there, but it says it has all of its memory free. Where did I mess up and how do I fix it? I'm lost. Did the clone just not work and I have to do it again?

    Cloning a windows10 installation is a little more complex than with previous installs that used strictly BIOS rather than UEFI.... but if you tried a clone operation and the OS doesn't seem to think there's any info on the disk, something definitely went wrong. ;-)

    Trying again is unlikely to hurt anything. For what it's worth, I used AOMEI Partition Assistant Professional for a client in the last month or so when I couldn't figure out how to do it with what I think is a fair bit of OS/filesystem knowledge... so take that for whatever it's worth but the AOMEI stuff worked the first time around and at something like 40 bucks was worth it to get the machine up and running (for me, anyway...)

    So I recloned and it shows up absolutely no where. I've tried everything and Crucial recommends returnings. Do you think there is any recoverable data on the SSD? If I return it I'm just worried someone will be able to recover whatever I attempted to clone on there.
