How to Migrate OS to HDD/SSD, Clone System Drive to HDD/SSD 

To do system clone on two separate disk partitions, there are some tips that shall raise your attention.

  • If the source disk contains the system partition, please shut down the computer after the clone.
  • To remove either the source disk or destination disk from the computer to make the computer boot normally if the source disk contains boot partition.
  • If you want to boot from the destination disk, we recommend you to replace the source disk with the destination disk.
