comment Free way to clone HDD to SSD?
I tried in vain to get Clonezilla to work but never could get it up and running. I eventually used Macrium Reflect which worked a treat. Just one thing to bear in mind; if you're editing files while the clone operation is running you'll lose them so it's best to leave the machine idle while you're waiting for the clone operation to complete.

comment Link speed says 1Gbps but is actually only 100Mbps
My guess would be that something on your machine is adding a layer between your test software and the physical link which is slowing the connection. Where exactly are you seeing the 100Mbps figure?

Reading / writing to disks as test isn't likely to be a good test of a gigabit link (most standard disks top out around the 40-50MB/s level).

What network interface are you connecting from? If it's a motherboard on a PC, are you sure you're looking at the correct interface (some motherboards have multiple interfaces)? What tests did you run?
