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

don't mind paying. 

 

For cloning, I would recommend either XXCLONE:

http://www.xxclone.com/

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

 

Cloning, Casper:

https://www.fssdev.com/products/casper/

 

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

 

For imaging, I would recommend

 

Imaging, Active@ Disk Image Lite:

http://www.disk-image.net/disk-image-freeware.htm

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

recommend either

 

Imaging, Image for Windows:

http://www.terabyteunlimited.com/image-for-windows.htm

 

Imaging, Drive Snapshot:

http://www.drivesnapshot.de/en/

 

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.

 

Michael
