Have Windows 10 installed on HDD? You can easily transfer Windows 10 to SSD without bothering to resintall Windows. And Cloning Windows 10 to SSD is the best and fast way to migrate Windows 10 OS to SSD.

Installing a solid-state disk is one of the best upgrades which we are quite familiar; however, transferring/moving your Windows 10 installation to a small disk must be more complicated because the data won't necessarily all fit on the new disk. Here's how to transfer Windows 10 to an SSD without reinstalling Windows and applications.

Generally speaking, "transfer operating system to SSD" is applied to replace hard disk on which the OS has been installed. For most of the users, it has been regarded as a hard problem to do it. Because it would take a lot of time to reinstall Windows Operating Systems and applications. So the OS migration is very important. You can find the best solution which can complete this task by cloning the system drive with some powerful and reliable tools, such as disk management software - EaseUS Partition Master.

The first-phase preparations must be backing up everything, and then deleting your personal files - like your documents, movies and music from the current hard disk, which will make your Windows installation small enough to fit on the SSD. Then we'll clone your current disk onto the SSD. From there, all your user folders - like My Documents, My Music, etc. will be moved to the original hard drive, and restore all your personal files from the backup image. In this way, you can enjoy the benefits of high speed to migrate while keeping all your documents and files readily accessible on a second drive.

EaseUS Partition Master is able to clone Windows 10 OS and applications to SSD without reinstalling Windows, please refer to the following guide.
