After that, relaunch the Paragon Hard Disk Manager program and migrate OS to the SSD again. If there is still the problem “Paragon migrate OS to SSD stuck”, please go to the next method.
Method 2: Check and Fix the System Disk Using CHKDSK
If there are file system errors or bad sectors on the system disk, the Paragon Hard Disk Manager program may get stuck when migrating OS to the SSD. In this case, you can use the Windows inbuilt CHKDSK utility to fix the issue “Paragon migrate OS to SSD stuck”. Follow the steps below to do that:
Step 1: Press the Win + S keys on the keyboard. Enter cmd in the search box, right-click Command Prompt, and choose Run as administrator.
Step 2: Type chkdsk c:/r in the elevated Command Prompt and press Enter. (c: is the drive letter of the system drive. If your Windows installation isn’t located on the C: partition, please change the drive letter.)
Step 3: Then, the system will give you a prompt “CHKDSK cannot run because the volume is in use by another process”. At this time, you need to type Y and press Enter to schedule your scan the next time the system restarts.
After that, exit Command Prompt and restart your computer. The CHKDSK utility will automatically start scanning and fixing your hard disk. Once the scan is complete, try to migrate OS to the SSD using Paragon Hard Disk Manager.

Method 3: Try Paragon Alternative
If the above two methods don’t work, in this case, you can try a Paragon alternative. MiniTool Partition Wizard is a safe and reliable application that can help you migrate OS to the SSD, copy disk, perform disk surface test, wipe disk, format partition, check file system, convert disk to MBR/GPT disk without data loss, and so on. Therefore, I recommend you use MiniTool Partition Wizard to migrate OS to the SSD.
So, how to migrate OS to the SSD using MiniTool Partition Wizard? Before that, you should make sure that your SSD is connected to the computer. Then, follow the steps below to do that:
Step 1: Get MiniTool Partition Wizard and follow the on-screen instructions to install it on your computer.
Step 2: Launch MiniTool Partition Wizard to its main interface, and then click Migrate OS to SSD/HD in the action panel.
Step 3: Choose a method to migrate OS to the SSD and then click Next.
Step 4: Choose your SSD as the target disk to migrate OS and then click Next. (Here I choose disk 3.)
Step 5: In this interface, you need to choose a copy method and click Next.
- Fit partitions to entire disk: This option means the system disk will be accordingly expanded or shrunk to fully fit the target disk. (If the used space in the system disk is smaller than the space of the target disk, the OS migration will fail.)
- Copy partitions without resizing: This option means the system disk will not be expanded or shrunk. (This option won’t be available if the target disk is smaller than the system disk.)
- Align partitions to 1MB: This option helps improve disk performance.
- Change Selected Partition: If the selected partition is near an unallocated space, you can expand or shrink the partition by dragging the triangles. If not, you can only shrink the selected partition.
Step 6: Please read the note carefully that shows how to boot from the target disk. Then, click Finish to go back to the main interface.
Step 7: Click Apply to execute all changes.
After you finish migrating OS to your SSD, you can boot from the SSD to see if there is something wrong.
In addition to Paragon Hard Disk Manager and MiniTool Partition Wizard, other programs like O&O Disk Image, Macrium Reflect, Clonezilla, etc. can also help users migrate OS to the SSD.
The last but not least, if your SSD is bought from Samsung or other famous SSD manufacturers, these brands may offer their disk cloning software for free.
