It depends. How big are the drives? How much is space on the drive currently used? What ties them together?

It is a common question how long it takes to copy a hard disk to an SSD. It depends on how much data you need to move, how quickly the cloning program runs, the read and write speeds, the computer system, the hard disk, etc. Therefore, the usual wait time would be between 10 mins and 1 hour. A 100GB hard drive will take roughly 17 minutes to copy if your cloning speed is 100MB/s.

Take cloning 1TB HDD to SSD for example. If the worst happens and the cloning program does not overlook the empty space, the hard drive can withstand an average read rate of 100 megabytes per second for around 10000 seconds or under 3 hours.
