There are several options depending on whether you want something free or

don't mind paying. 


For cloning, I would recommend either XXCLONE:

which is free, but requires use of the JAWS cursor or equivalent. 


Cloning, Casper:


which is not free, but is more accessible than XXCLONE.


For imaging, I would recommend


Imaging, Active@ Disk Image Lite:

if you want something that is free.  If you don't mind paying, then I would

recommend either


Imaging, Image for Windows:


Imaging, Drive Snapshot:


All three of these imaging applications are accessible.

Hi everyone,


I have not had to do this for a very long time, but I now find that I want to clone the HDD in my laptop computer to  an SSD to install and boost it’s performance. Firstly, I would like to know which softwares are the most accessible to use, and what about using Windows System Image Backup for this purpose. Secondly, I have a small problem with the SSD that I have. It is a 256 GB drive and it cannot be recognized when connected via a USB port, it must be connected via a SATA connection to be recognized by Windows , Win 10 in my case. Is there a device that will allow you to split a SATA connection into two? Any advice and/or solutions that can be offered are appreciated. Thanks for your help.
