Brief introduction to SSD

A solid-state drive, short for SSD, is also known as a solid-state disk or electronic disk, and though it contains no actual "disk" of any kind, nor motors to "drive" the disks is a data storage device using integrated circuit assemblies as memory to store data persistently. SSD technology uses electronic interfaces compatible with traditional block input/output (I/O) hard disk drives.

As the best hard drive partition software, AOMEI Partition Assistant is not only designed for basic partition functions, but also many wizards to ease complicate tasks. The Migrate OS to SSD Wizard is one of them.
