Transferring all data from one drive to another

Hello just wondering if it is possible to transfer everything from one drive to another. I would like to do it so that then I don't have to change the paths to files on that drive.

Use software that clones drives... Macrium Reflect , Samsung's software that clones a drive to ssd (should work between two regular drives) ...

When you're done set the pc to boot from the new drive...

You'd need to give the new drive the same assigned letter as the one your transferring from. Plug them both in, transfer the data across, remove the old drive and then delete the original drives designation which will then allow you to assign the new drive the old drives designation.
