Below are the step-by-step guide to cloning HDD to M.2 SSD:

Step 1. Install M.2 SSD on your computer, then make sure that Windows can detect it.

Step 2. Download, install, and launch EaseUS Disk Copy on your computer.

Step 3. Choose "Disk Mode" and choose the disk as the source disk, then click Next.

Step 4. Select the other disk (M.2 SSD) as the destination disk, and hit OK.

Step 5. (Optional) you can check and manage the disk layout of the M.2 SSD by selecting Autofit the disk, Copy as the source, or Edit disk layout.
