Any Hitachi hard drive cloning software?

"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."

Why Clone Hitachi Hard Drive?

There are some situations that you may clone Hitachi hard drive to another one in Windows 7, 8, 10, 11.

1. Get More Free Space: 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 to use. You have to perform Hitachi hard drive replacement to upgrade to a larger one.

2. Replace a Failing Hitachi Hard Drive: you might get a failing Hitachi hard drive due to some hardware issues (bad sectors, etc.), like the error “Windows detect a hard disk problem” 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.

3. Gain Better Performance: If your computer running slowly, and get a long boot time, it’s better to migrate operating system to SSD and other data from HDD to SSD.

The best way to above all situations is clone Hitachi hard drive without reinstalling everything.
