There are many different types of SSDs available on the official website of Silicon Power for you to choose from, you can learn more about them here.

Echo System Cloning Software for Silicon Power

SP's official website provides some Silicon Power software, which can be used with its products, including SP Widget, SP ToolBox, SP USB Flash Drive Recovery Software, etc. When it comes to replacing HDDs or upgrading SSDs, the use of cloning software is indispensable. SP cooperates with NTi to provide Echo for users who want to upgrade their computers by replacing hard disks with solid state drives.

Echo is a smart cloning software that allows you to make an exact copy of your computer's HDD to another HDD or SSD. The entire contents of the hard drive will be copied, and if necessary, Echo will automatically adjust the size of the target partition.

The latest feature of Echo allows users to choose 3 types of cloning methods:

✦ Dynamic Resize

Automatically resizes the original drive’s partitions to fit onto a smaller or larger replacement drive. This is the default and recommended cloning method.

Dynamic Resize

✦ One to One

Keep the partition structure and size of the original hard drive. Using this cloning method, if the new drive is larger than the original drive, the unused space on the new drive will remain unallocated.

One to One

✦ User Defined

Allow the user to adjust the size of the partitions on the new drive. This cloning method allows users to customize replacement drives to meet their free space requirements by increasing or decreasing the partition size.

User Defined

Limitations:
◑ The free Echo system cloning software cannot support RAID type.
◑ It is not intended to work with Dynamic Disks.

Through the above introduction, you can have a simple understanding of this Silicon Power SSD clone software. But it’s not free, you need to visit the link printed on the back of the Silicon Power SSD label, and then go to the Echo software verification page to download.

In addition to its limitations mentioned above, some users have reported some problems when using the software. Such as Echo installed with no errors but does not run, Echo rebooted the PC into its cloning mode, but stuck in a rebooting loop, etc.

Best Free NTI Echo Alternative—AOMEI Backupper

Considering the limitations of Echo, I strongly recommend that you use a free NTi Echo alternativeAOMEI Backupper Standard. It supports all Windows PC (Windows 7/8/8.1/10/11/XP/Vista). It can help you copy all the data from one disk to another completely and ensure that the computer can start normally after cloning. Let us see what advantages it has compared to other cloning software.

✩ Provide 3 clone types: Disk Clone, System Clone (supported by Professional edition), Partition Clone.
✩ Support a variety of disk types: HDDs, SATA SSDs, NVMe SSDs, M.2 SSDs, USB drives, SD cards, etc.
✩ Support all brands of SSD: clone HDD to Inland SSD, Kingston SSD, WD Blue SSD, Samsung SSD, etc.
✩ Provide 2 clone methods: Intelligent Clone (default) and Sector by Sector Clone. By default, this disk cloning software will only clone the existing data (used sectors) on the disk. If you want to clone all sectors on the source disk, regardless of whether it is used or not, please try the latter one.
✩ Support disk wiping: You can use it to erase the old hard drive for reuse or protect your private data before discarding the old hard drive.

This software is not just a cloning software, it also provides you with backup, synchronization, restore and other functions. Click the download button below to try it out.

How to Clone HDD to Silicon Power SSD with AOMEI Backupper

This Silicon Power cloning software interface is simple and easy to operate. I will show you how to use it to clone HDD to Silicon Power SSD.

Preparations:
▶ Connect the Silicon Power SSD to your current computer and make sure it can be detected.
▶ If you have important things on your Silicon Power SSD, please
backup files in advance. Because all data in the target disk will be overwritten during the cloning process.

To clone HDD to SSD, follow the steps below:

Step 1. Launch AOMEI Backupper, you will see a dark blue interface. Click Clone ->Disk Clone.

Disk Clone

Notes✍:
◆ The Standard version only supports cloning system disks from MBR to MBR. If you want to clone GPT to GPT, MBR to GPT, GPT to MBR, please consider upgrading to advanced editions.
◆ The advance editions also allow you to clone dynamic disks using System Clone or
Partition Clone.

Step 2. Select the original HDD as the source disk that you want to replace, and then click on Next.

Tips✍:
Edit partitions
(supported on the AOME Backupper Professional): This feature is very useful if you clone disk to larger disk. It can help you adjust the partition size of destination disk and avoid unallocated space after cloning.

Summary

The above are the two Silicon Power cloning software that I have introduced to you. After comparison, AOMEI Backupper is slightly better. It is free and has more comprehensive functions. Not only can help you transfer data and system, but also help you back up or restore files in your daily life.

It is also the best alternative to R-Drive Image, DriveImage XML, Acronis True Image, Cobian Backup and other backup or cloning software. With the help of AOMEI Backupper, you never have to worry about data security anymore.
