It's a good thing that people are aware of the need to format an SSD before cloning. However, if you are unfamiliar with it or want to save time and effort, EaseUS can assist. It will intelligently monitor the target SSD size while cloning the SSD. If the target SSD is smaller, it will prompt you only to clone the system disk or partitions.

EaseUS Disk Copy only requires several simple clicks to clone one SSD to another:

Note that you should prepare an SSD with a larger storage capacity than the source SSD.

  • Launch EaseUS Disk Copy and select Disk Mode.
  • Select the old SSD as the source disk, and click Next.
  • Choose the new SSD as the target disk, and click Next.
  • Check the layout of the cloned disk, and click Proceed to start the cloning task.
