New ssd and I want to move all my files from my old hard drive to it

Recommended Posts

Pretty simple question here, but, how do I transfer every single file from the hard drive to my new ssd?

Thanks!

Usually your new SSD will come with free transfer software.  I know my P1 SSD did (well one I could download).  Who makes your SSD?  Have you checked their web-site for any cloning software?

Macrium Reflect works well for cloning Windows (along with other files) from an old HDD to a new SSD.

Use Macrium Reflect. It is free to use and works really well. I've used it multiple times. And as @r2724r16 said, you can clone Windows as well from you old drive, including all the partitions and everything.

Remember some programs require the drive’s serial number to be the same so make sure the clone program will copy every bit of the drive
