How to copy my os drive (c)

I am upgrading my os drive from 240gb to 1 tb and I want to clone the drive as is (due to all the libraries and dependencies setup) 

Usually this also clones all the partitions so how do I keep the full 960gb and clone the entire c drive

Macrium reflect is a good free program.

 

But, why not just add the new drive and keep your 240? Install all new programs to the 1 TB and make the 1 TB your default steam instal directory (assuming you use steam for games).

This is a good suggestion.

240 gb is an old dram less version (sata) 

And the new 960 gb is nvme.. And the old ssd has like 10 gb of free space

Macrium Reflect. Clone the 240 to the 960, once done it will show as only 240 GB and having lots of unallocated space. In windows drive manager you can add that space to the existing partition and everything will work perfectly normal :)
