I want to transfer bootdrive (SSD) to another (ssd)

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I know Intel has their own software to do this with their SSD, anyone know a good software that I can do this without reinstalling windows and everything? I'm running on 3Gbs on my bootdrive and I want to transfer it all to a bigger SSD

Patience...this forum isn't always that fast.

I haven't used any lately, but I've seen some of the following mentioned:
Acronis True Image
EaseUS Todo Backup

What about the
Intel® Data Migration Software?

Also, will there be a problem if I transfer my boot-drive (SSD1) with my os to my other SSD with some data inside? Cause I want to transfer it all and wipe clean my small 60gb ssd.

I've never used the Intel Data Migration software, so no idea.

What you want to do is "clone". That is, make an exact copy of SSD1 (old, OS/Data) onto SSD2 (new, presumably blank). SSD2 should be blank or able to be completely wiped.

Here's another thread to look at:

Acronis True Image Home.
Or Clonezilla.

I use Acronis at work to deploy M$ on machines,
you need another drive to save the backup onto though

I usually use Norton Ghost. But I have been moving toward Acronis lately as it is a little more flexible.

Yes it will work and should boot up just fine too. When your finished you will have to resize the partition to fully use your space.
