Can any program clone C drive to SSD in Windows 10

I have upgraded my computer from Windows 7 to Windows 10 when the official version of the new system came out. Now I am buying a new SSD. I want to use it as a bootable disk and the old HDD as a data storage disk. So, to achieve the goal, I need to move Windows 10 from HDD to SSD. I know I can manually reinstall the system and all the installed applications to the SSD. But I don't think it is the best or the only way. Maybe I can choose to clone C drive to SSD. Do you know any reliable cloning software can help?

Like the case mentioned above, you might need to migrate OS to SSD in different situations, for example, upgrade HDD to SSD. And if you want to find the easiest way to do the job, you have to use a third-party Windows 10 SSD cloning software. By cloning C drive to SSD, such programs can help you keep everything intact after the HDD to SSD migration job. It is really the best solution to transfer C drive to SSD without reinstalling anything. You can't find another easier and safer way.
