How to upgrade my HP Z2 Mini from 256 GB SSD to 1TB SSD

HP Recommended
HP Z2 Mini G3 Workstation
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello,

 

My 256GB boot-up SSD has long gone too small. 

I purchased a 1TB SSD Z Turbo drive to replace it.

My question is how can I clone the content of my 256GB SSD to the 1TB SSD so I dont  have to reinstall everything?

As far as I know, I cannot have the 2 SSD in my Z2 mini...

 

Thank You in advance for your help.

Sebastien

@Sebastien_Actis,

You can use a SSD to USB adapter. After the cloning, swap the SSD's.  You will have a 256 SSD external data drive. There are several free cloning software, ie; EaseUS Todo backup. It has a cloning program.
