Why Do You Clone NVMe to NVMe SSD

NVMe (Non-Volatile Memory Express) SSD is a type of SSD that has revolutionized storage technology and vastly improved data transfer speeds and overall performance compared to SATA SSDs and traditional HDDs.

You must be wondering: can I clone NVMe to NVMe SSD drive, or is it possible to clone original NVMe SSD disk to a larger NVMe SSD drive since there are various form factors of NVMe SSD? The answer is yes. You can clone NVMe SSDs with different form factors.

One of the major reasons that push users to clone SSD disk is enhanced storage capacity. NVMe SSDs are available in different sizes. There must be ample situations where users feel the need to have larger storage for efficient performance.

Another reason is that cloning NVMe SSD to another larger NVMe SSD drive means backing up files or transferring data to another. NVMe SSD clone is a good practice to protect important data and operating systems and represents a fast way to transfer files.

If you want to clone NVMe or M.2 SSD with only one slot on your laptop, you can refer to the following article for help.

How to Clone M.2 SSD with Only One Slot

Most laptops nowadays come with an M.2 slot for an SSD. If you want to clone M.2 SSD to another one, you are required to have two M.2 slots. Here we will show you how to clone M.2 SSD with only one slot. Read more >>

What Do You Need in NVMe to NVMe Cloning

As NVMe SSD is a newer model of SSD, unlike SATA SSD, you need to do some extra operations before cloning for a successful NVMe clone. Here are what you should prepare.

● Newer computer hardware (it is better to have Skylake chipsets or later, even if NVMe is compatible with old computers) 
● An M.2 PCI-E x4 slot
● UEFI firmware & UEFI boot mode

If you have already run an operating system on NVMe SSD, the above pre-conditions can be omitted. All you need to pay attention to is the following two aspects:

● The NVMe M.2 slot. If there is only one NVMe M.2 slot, you have two choices in SSD migration: use an adapter from M.2 to PCle for the second drive to do cloning, and use backup & restore to migrate. 
● The NVMe SSD cloning software. The software should be an all-around tool that offers features for your different cloning plans.

The most important tool you will need is an NVMe SSD cloning software to clone NVMe drive since Windows has no preinstalled cloning features. The tool we recommend that helps you clone NVMe SSD is EaseUS Disk Copy. Since Windows does not provide a built-in cloning feature, relying on third-party software to clone the SSDs becomes essential.

The EaseUS Disk Copy's interface is clear and simple, and users can easily understand how to use it once installed. It can help you migrate Windows from HDD to SSD or SSD to SSD and clone HDD to M.2 SSD. In addition, it can also allow you to install Windows after replacing a hard drive.

The process of cloning NVMe SSDs is similar to cloning a computer hard drive to a target NVMe SSD. In the entire cloning process, you do not have to reinstall Windows. Also, your data is secured throughout the process.
