    My (Crucial) SSD came bundled with with license for Acronis True Image.

    You could probably do it for free with Linux tools such as GParted and it's disc imaging tools.

    My SSD came with a full copy of Norton Ghost, but I did a clean install rather than trying to migrate the drive so didn't use the software. I would recommend trying a clean install as an old install is going to run less well and if there are other issues they will get carried across to the SSD.

    This forum guide should help if you do decide to go for a clean install - An SSD installation and configuration guide | AVForums

    When I moved to SSD I used the Samsung Magician software, it came bundled with the disk and worked very well, it also helped me to optimize my system, but it only with samsung drives.
