I am sure that this will work, but recommending that users take an image copy of their drive, either using Windows 7’s backup app, or a third party (I use Macrium) backup program before installation, and making a rescue disk at the same time is the best procedure to follow, Booting from the rescue disk and restoring my backup from the previous night was completely effective and had my system up and running in 40 minutes.
I would still like to know if this is the expected behavior following instalation and reboot. I program such as this should have comprehensive installation instructions, caveats…etc. on the same page as the download iste. Users should be fully informed before they begin the installation process. They should also be strongly urged to image their SSD drive before installing the program, as I mentioned above.
