Cloning your hard drive is the best solution to transfer the entire hard drive to a computer, which will keep everything the same and intact on the hard drive of the new computer and without any data loss.

It is a pity that the Windows system doesn't have a built-in hard drive cloning utility while copying data one by one is too time-consuming. Using third-party disk cloning software, like EaseUS Disk Copy, is the most widely used method to move data to a new computer.

EaseUS Disk Copy is a professional hard drive cloning tool that allows you to clone multiple disks, including HDD to SSD, SSD to HDD, SSD to M.2 SSD, etc. It also supports sector-by-sector clone, and you can choose to migrate only those used partitions. 

Don't worry about the operation, even if you are a novice, because EaseUS Disk Copy only requires a few clicks to finish the task. Now follow the steps below to start the hard drive cloning. 

  • Connect the old hard drive to your new computer as an external HDD.
  • Launch EaseUS Disk Copy on your new computer, and select "Disk Mode".
  • Choose the HDD as the source disk
  • Click one of the disks on your new computer as the target disk.
  • Preview the disk layout of the two disks, and click "Proceed" to start the cloning task.

When the cloning finishes, you can see all data on your old HDD has been shown on the disk of your new computer. You can change the boot settings in the BIOS, restart your PC, and boot it from the cloned disk.
