Free Imaging programs other than Clonezilla

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am trying to migrate my SSD drive (which has Manjaro Linux) over to a Samsung 960 Pro nvme drive. The SSD is 240gb and the nvme is 512gb so imaging the whole drive and copying it over should not be an issue. I have always had success using Clonezilla for these type of drive migrations, but it crashes when writing to the Samsung drive. I tried both drive to drive directly and image to drive and it crashes in the same fashion for each.

Does anyone have other suggestions for freeware that can perform whole drive images to nvme? Or, barring that, a pay program that can perform this task reliably.

I'm not too Linux savvy, but a quick search and I got here.

It looks like Linux has a built in tool? Have you tried that?

Also I'm not sure, but do you need to install an nvme driver before you can write to the new disk? Like.... Outside of cloning can you currently access and use the drive as a secondary?

The built in Linux tool "dd" did the trick...did not know that existed. Thanks for the tip. I did the copy booted into a Ubuntu live image since it struck me as a bad idea to copy from an active drive. It was incredibly fast as well...500 Mb/sec so less than 10min for the full 240 Gb to copy.
