How Can I Swap My SSD Without Losing My Data?🔥

I have a Windows 11 computer with a 1TB HDD and 250GB M.2 SSD. I have bought a new 1 TB M.2 SSD and plan to replace the old 250GB one with only one slot, but my Windows 11 is installed on the old SSD. Can I change my SSD without losing data or reinstalling OS?

As you mentioned above, your computer has only one slot, so you will need to prepare a USB enclosure for your M.2 SSD. Place your new SSD in the USB enclosure and plug it into your computer. This will make it become an additional drive.

After that, use EaseUS disk cloning software to help you copy data from your SSD to another.

It is a multi-functional disk cloning program designed for Windows PCs. It can help you clone a hard drive with many partitions and transfer your Windows from an HDD to an SSD or an SSD to an SSD. It can also let you clone a drive with a bad sector thanks to its sector-by-sector cloning technology.

Most importantly, it lets you migrate data from one computer to another and transfer your Windows SSD to another PC. Here is how to use EaseUS Disk Copy:

Step 1. To clone a hard drive to another, choose this drive as the source disk under "Disk Mode" and press "Next".

Step 2. Choose another disk as the target disk.

Step 3. Check the drive layout of the two drives.

Step 4. Click "Proceed" to begin cloning.

After cloning, you need to replace the old drive with the new one and boot your computer from it.

If you want to change your SSD without losing data, you must use professional cloning software like EaseUS Disk Copy to help you copy everything from one hard drive to another.
