Crucial SSD SuperDuper!

I just copied the 250GB hard disk from my MacBook 2.4Ghz to a new 250GB Crucial Solid State Disk that I installed. 80GB are used out of 249GB available. It took 1 hour, 40 minutes. Not bad!

So do you think the copy can be trusted? A Disk Utility verify of the drive I copied to resulted in green, no errors.
