But to migrate Windows from an old hard drive to a new drive, you must use professional cloning software because Windows has no built-in cloning tools. EaseUS Disk Copy can fit you well in this regard.

It is a professional cloning utility for Windows 11, 10, 8, and 7 computers, which can help you clone hard drives with different sizes and clone systems and partitions. In addition, it can help you clone a disk with bad sectors and upgrade HDD to SSD without reinstalling Windows.
