I'm not sure if I have the right solution, but I'm PRETTY sure I came across the same problem when I installed my samsung ssd a couple of months ago. Thing is, they don't make it clear for people new to cloning, when you install samsung software, which soft does what. Yes, you have icon, but the instinct tells me to install "Samsung Magician" to clone old hdd, as this is what people recommend as "easy to use" when they buy samsung ssd. However, there are TWO apps and - afair - the magician is NOT the one that you can clone your old drive with. It's the other program (I forgot the name) which comes up as an option in that install exe file, which you need to run / install. Probably something called "clone".
no, it's called "Samsung Data Migration". So, uninstall the magician, install the data migration, migrate to new ssd, delete (if you want), install the Magician, run and use it to optimize and maintain samsung ssd.
