We all use our OS, on daily basis. Our drives are important in order to store files and Windows necessary processes. But it is a real headache when it comes the time to replace a drive which has our OS in it. The prefered method, and maybe the safest is Clean Install. But that comes at a cost. All our files, settings,etc, would be lost.
Fortunately, there are ways to clone our drive to a new one. If you are unfamiliar with the term, Cloning is the process to migrate our System from one drive to another without losing our files, settings, etc. It is an exact copy of our drive. Though there are many softwares that claim to do that, most of them have many locked features that reder them unusable. And by the time, a Home User won’t need them more than once then and now, it is unlikely that would like to pay for it. Moreover, cracked versions are never advisable. Hopefully, there is one app that offers Cloning for free, though some advanced features are locked. But for a Home User, the free edition, is more than enough.
