The issue of "Transcend SSD Scope not working"

"I used SSD scope to clone my system HDD to Transcend SSD, the SSD program frozen and crashed while cloning. And no matter how many times I tried, the cloning process can't continue, Can anyone help me to clone system successfully?"


Overview of Transcend SSD Scope clone software

Transcend SSD Scope clone software was developed for Transcend SSD products. It provides lots of useful features, including Disk and System Clone, Diagnostic Scan, Secure Erase, and Firmware Update. But when it comes to cloning data from one disk to a new Transcend SSD, you would better choose an alternative tool, instead of the Transcend SSD Scope clone software.



In terms of disk and system clone, Transcend SSD Scope has some limitations making lots of users abandon this tool. For instance, it was designed for Transcend SSD so it can only support cloning data and system to Transcend SSD. Besides, if the capacity of your Transcend SSD is smaller than the original HDD but larger than the system partition, it will only clone the system partition to the SSD; if there’s not sufficient storage space on the Transcend SSD to hold the data from the source disk, the program may be frozen or gets crashes during the system disk clone.

And for compatibility, it only supports Windows 11/10/8/8.1/7, you can’t copy data or system in some old Windows systems like Windows XP. It might be the reason why the Transcend SSD Scope doesn’t work for the system in the Scenario above.

How to fix "Transcend SSD Scope not working for system clone"?

As you can see in the scenario above, Transcend SSD might be frozen and get crashed during system disk clone process. In this case, partitions on the source disk may get lost and the disk will be displayed as unallocated. You can use "Partition Recovery Wizard" of AOMEI Partition Assistant to recover the lost partitions. But how to fix it when Transcend SSD Scope won’t work for system disk clone?

You should make sure your Transcend SSD has enough space to hold the operating system; if not, you can move apps like Microsoft office to another drive from the C drive to free up space. Then, retry Transcend SSD Scope and check whether it works. Meanwhile, if Transcend SSD Scope doesn't work due to an old Windows version, you're supposed to upgrade it to a newer version.
