  • Your hard disk can't afford to hold any other data; you want to get your data cloned to a larger one, like an ADATA SSD disk.

  • Important data must be migrated to ADATA SSD or others to prevent it from loss.

  • You have a ADATA SSD with faster speed, more capacity and better performance; get your data transferred into the new one.

  • Maybe you want to clone your system to ADATA SSD or other disks to prevent re-installing system in some circumstance.

There are two approaches to realize the ADATA data migration: Windows Backup and Restore, and the best ADATA SSD disk migration tool.

ADATA Data Migration with Windows Backup and Restore

Every Windows version has its feature to backup and restore data. You can backup your files, folders and system to other locations or external hard disk.

In Windows 10, you can go Start -> Settings -> Update & Security -> Backup. There are two options to back up your data: “Back up using File History” or “Looking for an older backup”.

Windows 10 Backup Program

In Windows 8, you need to access Start -> type Windows 7 file -> Windows 7 File Recovery -> Set up backup. Then follow the on-screen guide to migrate data to ADATA SSD.

Windows 7 Backup

In Windows 7, please go to Start -> type backup -> select Backup and Restore -> click Set up backup and backup data with the wizard. 

Although Windows backup software is very convenient, it’s obvious has some limitations. You can check them in the following. 

  • Only backup files in libraries, desktop, and in default Windows system folders.

  • You cannot restore the individual file from the system image file.

  • The image file could not use directly, you should restore your data from image file when the system data get damaged, it’s kind of complicated.

3. Select ADATA SSD drive as destination disk to save the data from source disk (here is Disk 2).

Select Destination Disk

Notes:
✍If there is a boot or system partition on the destination SSD disk, which makes the boot partition cannot boot when the clone operation completed. Thus, make sure you have the boot or system partition stored to other disk.
✍Make sure the ADATA SSD disk can hold the data of source disk if you are cloning large disk to smaller disk.

Tips: There are several additional options in this step.
✍Click “Edit Partitions” to adjust the size of partitions on the destination disk to fully use the storage space on the destination if you clone disk to larger ADATA SSD.
✍Tick “Sector by sector clone” to clone all sectors on the source disk whether the sector is in use or not. If you tick the option, make sure the capacity of ADATA SSD disk is larger than source disk, at least equal to the latter. And the time will be much longer.
✍If your destination disk is a SSD (like ADATA SSD) disk, please make sure you have ticked “SSD Alignment”, if else, just leave it alone.
