Your data will no longer be accessible if you remove the old hard disk and install a new one. However, all the data on your hard drive will remain intact if you clone it to the new SSD or hard drive. EaseUS Partition Master Professional can ensure a smooth transition without data loss, helping users effortlessly migrate the Windows system to a new drive.
