The answer is YES. Using a disk cloning program, you can clone a 1TB HDD to a 2TB SSD with ease. The process involves the following main steps.

  • Download reliable and professional hard drive cloning software

EaseUS Disk Copy is a popular Windows 11/10/8/7 disk and partition cloning tool that will ensure a smooth HDD to SSD cloning without reinstalling the operating system. With a fast cloning speed, it makes upgrading hard drives and SSDs faster and easier.

  • Backup important data on the target disk

If you have already saved data on the target HDD/SSD, you'd better back them in advance because the cloning process will erase all data on it. You can use the free backup software or Windows Backup and Restore feature to do it successfully.

  • Make your SSD prepared

The 2TB SSD is enough for the 1TB hard drive data, and you don't need to worry about storage. But you need to ensure that the target SSD's partition style is the same as the source HDD. That means MBR to MBR and GPT to GPT. If not, you need to convert MBR to GPT or change GPT to MBP.

You can start the HDD to SSD cloning with EaseUS Disk Copy when all these preparations are done. Follow the steps below:

  • Launch EaseUS Disk Copy, and connect SSD to the computer.
  • Choose the Disk Mode, and select the HDD as the source disk.
  • Select the SSD as the target disk, and check the layout of the target disk.
  • Click "Proceed" to start the process.

When finished, you can get a new cloned SSD with all previous data on it.
