I'm not sure how to use MiniTool Partition Wizard

Hey guys, so I want to migrate my HHD to the new SSD. I want to migrate from disk2 to disk 1, however it seems to be that it is migrating from disk3 to disk1 as the partition of  disk1 doesn't look like like disk2 (like shown in the picture). I'm not sure of this so can someone please clarify it for me. Then if it is migrating from disk3, how do I change it back to migrate from disk2. Thank you so much for helping.

So what Windows reports in Disk Management and what MiniTool Partition Wizard reports, may not be the same. Easiest way is to select the partitions/drives based on what the content is. Check Disk Management and make note of what partitions are on which drive. Then in MiniTool select the source drive that has the same layout as the drive you want to clone.

 

Since you are doing this in a PC, the PC's drive/Windows installation will likely be drive 0 or 1. You don't want that one.

 

You want to make sure you are not cloning the PC Windows to the new drive, but rather the old laptop drive to the new laptop drive.

 

The new blank (destination drive) should not have any partitions or data on it and should show up as one big drive with unallocated space.

Also, if you know the make and model of the drive, you can look at the drive properties to figure out which drive is which based on Manufacturer/model

 

I would cancel out of that screen you are in on your screenshot and check and double check which drive is which before proceeding.

 

You select the source disk you want by clicking on it in MiniTool to highlight it.
