How Do I Clone a Hard Drive with Multiple Partitions?

I have a 512G hard drive with 4 partitions, including a system partition and 3 data partitions. For better performance, I want to clone the operating system to an SSD and other data partitions to a new disk. Then, I will remove the old drive and install the new SSD. Will this work? Can I clone a hard drive with multiple partitions? Any advice is appreciated.

It is common that there are multiple partitions on a hard drive. Thus, when cloning a hard drive, all partitions on the hard drive and files inside each partition should be transferred to the target hard disk or SSD.

The disk cloning process requires the assistance of third-party disk cloning software because Windows doesn't have a cloning tool. The good news is that many disk cloning tools are available.

Furthermore, some applications even enable you to migrate Windows OS to HDD/SSD, clone partition to partition, back up the entire hard drive into a single image file, and clone a hard drive sector by sector.

EaseUS Disk Copy is precisely the right one that can meet your needs.

It is a practical cloning tool for Windows computers. It allows you to perform a sector-by-sector clone, so you can clone a hard drive with different partitions and clone a hard disk with bad sectors on your PCs. In addition, it lets you create a WinPE bootable disk, clone hard drives with different sizes, and resize partitions during the cloning process.

If you want to change your HDD to SSD, it can also help you upgrade your HDD to SSD without reinstalling Windows. When you use EaseUS Disk Copy to clone a hard drive with multiple partitions, you can select sector-by-sector copy.

You can clone a hard drive with multiple partitions, but you need to use professional disk cloning software like EaseUS Disk Copy.
