Need to clone HDD to SSD? Learn how to do it safely in this tutorial

One of the greatest wonders of the modern world is the new technologies that emerge with the passage of time. A practical example was the arrival of the SSD, a component that arrived to make life easier (and a lot) for users of computers and notebooks, since with it it is possible to achieve speeds and performance that were not feasible with a common HDD.

And to take advantage of all this technology, did you know that it is possible to transfer all (or a good part) of your data from your hard drive to an SSD? 4DDiG Partition Manager software is a powerful, safe, and efficient tool to help you clone HDD to SSD or from SSD to HDD directly. In this article, we explain how it works and how to clone HDD to SSD and vice versa.

How to Clone HDD to SSD

Safety and efficiency first

4DDiG Partition Manager software is a powerful, safe and efficient tool to help you clone HDD to SSD or from SSD to HDD directly. The software has an enhanced data protection technique to ensure that there is no data loss. All operations are pending until you click “Apply”. Plus, it’s super easy to use, thanks to its intuitive interface and step-by-step wizards that simplify all the complicated hard drive partition management operations.

However, before initiating any procedure on hard drives, it is important that any and all important files are kept in a backup. Although 4DDiG Partition Manager is extremely secure, it is not free from process flaws. Therefore, the most prudent thing to do is to save your photos and documents in another location before starting the process.

Is it possible to clone HDD to SSD without losing data?

Definitely, yes! And that’s the whole point of 4DDiG Partition Manager. But what to do before starting the procedure with the software? In addition to performing the backup, as we mentioned above, you need to have a new hard drive or SSD with a larger capacity than the original drive.

To ensure fast Windows performance on the new disk, make sure it has a generous capacity, leaving 30% to 40% of free space. For example, if the current disk is 120 GB, the new disk must be at least 256 GB.

Also, it’s important that the new drive is set up correctly on your computer:

  • Install the new disk in your PC via SATA cable or NVMe SSD slot.
  • Initialize the SSD with the same disk type as the operating system: MBR or GPT.
