Replace Main Hard Drive.

HP Recommended

Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I need to replace the existing internal SSD hard drive (the boot drive, containing the C: volume) with a new one.  How can I  get a clone of the existing hard drive data onto the new drive, before unplugging the existing drive, and plugging in the new one?

I normally do:

 

(a) Mount new SSD to an enclosure or adapter; for example

(b) Use free software to clone

(c) Physically remove old one and install new one.

 

Did you install SSD to your machine ? Its specs does not say anything about SSD
