Clone a hard disk

Disk clone will transfer all data (include operating system and program) on the selected hard disk to another. It is especially useful when you want to replace hard disk with a new one. For a successful disk clone, please ensure that the capacity of destination disk is larger than the used space of source disk.

Advanced clone settings

These advanced settings can help you clone a drive more stably and smoothly in some special case. However, without these advanced settings, EaseUS Todo backup can still give you an exact and intact clone.

Optimize for SSD - If the destination disk is an SSD, checking this option will ensure sector alignment in the process.
Sector by sector clone - A sector by sector clone ensures that the destination hard disk/partition is exactly the same as the source hard disk/partition. It will clone all the sectors if the option is checked, even if the sector is blank. As a result, the target will be equal in size to the disk being cloned after the process. This option is found in the same step where you choose the destination hard disk/partition both in the Disk clone and Partition clone wizard. 

The disk/partition cannot be resized if you choose to clone your disk in the Sector by sector mode.
