I recently bought a new SSD and cloned my hard drive using EaseUS Todo Backup. However, when I cloned the drive I forgot to select “Optimize for SSD.” There was very little on the hard drive besides for the operating system at the time.

Will it make a difference that I didn’t select “Optimize for SSD” and what does the optimization do exactly?

Should I go ahead and reclone my drive? Am I being paranoid?

I think you are ok the way it is, have you tried booting from it?

From the website of EaseUS:

Advanced clone settings

These advanced settings can help you clone a drive more stably and smoothly in some special case. However, without these advanced settings, EaseUS Todo backup can still give you an exact and intact clone.

Optimize for SSD - If the destination disk is an SSD, checking this option will ensure sector alignment in the process.

Sector by sector clone - A sector by sector clone ensures that the destination hard disk/partition is exactly the same as the source hard disk/partition. It will clone all the sectors if the option is checked, even if the sector is blank. As a result, the target will be equal in size to the disk being cloned after the process. This option is found in the same step where you choose the destination hard disk/partition both in the Disk clone and Partition clone wizard.

Note:

The disk/partition cannot be resized if you choose to clone your disk in the Sector by sector mode.
