OS cloning from ssd to hdd.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey, my current ssd has a malfuction and are often unresponsive and the OS freeze while sounds continue, so on monday, im gonna send the ssd away to get another one, but untill then i have an sata 2.0 hdd 500gb which im gonna use as a backup.

Which program would you guys recommend as the best OS cloning program? (got the hdd in my pc but with a chip which i had from a external hdd (the psu isnt powerfull enough for another hdd) to transfer the current content on another internal hdd to then to be used as a OS hdd)

You can use a Win 7 built in backup option called Backup and Restore.

But it only takes backup into a file, i want to clone the whole thing onto the hdd. So i then can easily just plug out the ssd and then put in the hdd, to boot up as nothing happened.

You can use it to create a system image, and then restore that to the new drive. Basically same as a clone.

If you have a WD drive in the system (not necessarily the one you are cloning) you can use their clone tool:

Parted Magic also works:
