Samsung Magician is a free optimization tool provided by Samsung to monitor drive health and manage SSD data. It features drive details, performance benchmarks, diagnostic scans, etc., and doesn't have a hard drive clone feature.

If you need to clone a hard drive to Samsung SSD, you can use Samsung Data Migration (SDM) or professional hard drive cloning software, like EaseUS Disk Copy. Samsung Data Migration (SDM) is a tool that comes with Samsung SSD, and it can help you clone the hard drive to Samsung SSD. It is built with a wizard-like interface and enables you to complete the migration over a few simple steps.

  • Connect SSD to your PC.
  • Install and launch Samsung Data Migration(SDM), and it will automatically scan any connected storage device.
  • Click Start to begin the disk scan and diagnosis.
  • Choose the source and target disks as instructed.
  • Click Start to clone the hard drive, and wait for it to finish.

On the other hand, if you prefer using cloning software, EaseUS Disk Copy is an ideal choice. With it, you can clone the entire hard drive to SSD or selectively transfer specific files. The program supports both MBR and GPT disk types, allowing you to clone various kinds of systems like Windows 11/10/8/7.

  • Connect SSD to your PC.
  • Download and install EaseUS Disk Copy, then launch it.
  • Click Disk Mode option.
  • Choose the source and target disks.
  • Click "Proceed" to start the cloning process.

Samsung Magician is not capable of cloning a hard drive, but you can use either Samsung Data Migration or EaseUS Disk Copy to transfer data. With these tools help, you can clone your hard drive to a Samsung SSD within minutes. Good luck!
