Problem cloning HDD to SSD??

[ Edited ]

I connect my SanDisk 240GB SSD to HP laptop, Windows 10, with a Sabrent SSD to USB 3.0 adapter cable, try installing the WD Acronis software and it's BLOCKED! "Acronis True Image WD edition Installation Restricted"


For some reason, Acronis software install check appears unable to detect my SanDisk SSD Plus drive. Windows reports the device as a 'Sabrent SCSI disk device'.


The HDD in my HP Laptop is an HGST 1TB drive. HGST is also owned by Western Digitail, yet neither the HDD nor the SSD is recognized by the Acronis install check as being qualified Acronis WD version supported. Very BAD.


Is there a workaround for this, or am I going to have to use another cloning software which won't erroneously fail a check for supported drive (SanDisk/WD)?
