An HDD/SSD migration tool: EaseUS Todo Backup

Let's look at what you must prepare in advance.

First, Download and install EaseUS Todo Backup on your old computer.

EaseUS Windows backup software provides with a "System Transfer" function, with which you can transfer your system to a totally different computer, even with dissimilar hardware. It ensures a successful system boot-up after connecting the cloned hard drive to the new computer.

■​ Second, transfer Windows 10 from the old computer to the new computer step by step.

To enable this function, first, you need to make an EaseUS Todo Backup Bootable disk. Next, create a Windows 10  system backup and finally start the transfer!

Let's assume that we're going to transfer system of computer A to computer B, and here's the over process to take effect.

Step 1. On computer A, create an EaseUS Todo Backup bootable USB drive

Make sure that the USB flash drive does not store important files because the software formats and erases the drive for making it bootable.

  • Click the tool icon and choose "Create Emergency Disk".
  • Under the "Boot disk type", click "Create WinPE emergency disk"
  • Under "Boot disk location", tick "USB" (this option is available only when the USB drive is correctly connected and recognized).
  • Click "Proceed".

Step 2. On computer A, create a system backup

  • Click "System Backup".
  • The system is chosen by default. Choose the bootable USB drive to save the system backup by clicking "Browse..." in the "Destination" area.
  • Click "Proceed" to create a backup image on the same USB drive.

Step 3. On computer B, boot from EaseUS Todo Backup and transfer system

Now, plug in the EaseUS Todo Backup bootable USB drive with a system backup on it to the computer B, boot from the USB drive.

  • Click "System Transfer".
  • Choose the system backup image on the USB drive and click "OK".
  • Choose C drive or other drives on the Computer B as a location to restore the system backup image.
  • Click "Proceed" to start transferring system from the computer A to the computer B right now.
