Yes, you can clone a PS4 hard drive to SSD. As we know, the PS4 has 500GB of storage, so it will fill up with more and more games over time, leaving less room for new games. If your PS4 hard drive is almost full as you keep installing games, you may need to upgrade your PS4 hard drive. One of the effective ways is to clone a PS4 hard drive to SSD.

Since the process is a little complicated for most users, and any wrong operation may corrupt the thye PS4's original hard drive, I recommend using EaseUS Partition Master - an all-featured and professional hard drive manager. This software can help you initialize the new SSD and easily clone the PS4 hard drive to the new SSD without losing any data. Here is the full guide on how to clone a PS4 hard drive to an SSD with EaseUS Partition Master:

Step 2. Right-click the target SSD and select "Initialize to MBR/GPT." Click "Execute Task" and "Apply" to apply the changes.

Now, you can use the "Clone Disk Data" feature of EaseUS Partition Master to start cloning the PS4 original hard drive to a new SSD:
