How Long Does It Take to Clone a 250GB Hard Drive?

I store my backups on a 250GB hard drive. How long would I transfer 250GB of data to a larger external hard drive? Is there a better way to complete this task? If so, could you kindly explain how?

The time it takes to clone a hard drive depends on the data size and cloning speed. For instance, cloning a drive with 250 GB of data will take slightly under 45 minutes at a constant 100 Mb/s speed. However, the cloning process would take twice as long - nearly 1.5 hours - if the same 250 GB device was copied at 50 Mb/s.

Other elements, such as the USB cable, hardware condition, cloning tool, disk type, bad sectors, etc., will also influence the time of the cloning process and the transfer speed.

You must need a professional cloning tool since Windows lacks one to help you clone your 250GB hard drive. Under such circumstances, EaseUS Disk Copy comes to help.
