The Case

I got a Samsung SSD, and put it into my computer, and its proprietary cloning software-Samsung Data Migration which worked great. But it’s only work with the Samsung SSD drive. Now, I want to add a 1T Hitachi hard drive to another laptop, and I really hate reinstall windows operating system and applications. Can anyone advice me the best Hitachi hard drive cloning software.

When You Will Clone Hitachi Hard Drive?

With the usage of the computer, the hard drive will hold a pile of files like music files, work files, videos, movies, photos, applications and other documents. Your computer would get a “low disk space” pop-up and you’ll find the c drive has not enough free space for your tasks.

If you plan to replace your small hard drive with a large hard drive to get more free space, you may copy all the data or some essential files from the smaller one to the larger one.

On some conditions, it’s necessary to swap your HDD for a brand new SSD drive to get a higher speed of running; so you have to migrate OS to SSD drive without reinstalling Windows and applications.

In addition, if you get a “Windows detect a hard disk problem” message by system, which indicates the hard disk has some problems, please backup or transfer the important data to another location in case of the hard disk failure.
