Whether you’re upgrading to a larger drive or want better performance, cloning your current drive to an SSD is an excellent way to do it.  Some people assume that you can boot from SSD by copying drive C to SSD. In fact, this approach may not work and will most likely cause the computer to fail to boot, indicating that the boot device cannot be found.  So how can you quickly and easily clone to an SSD?  Because Windows does not provide any built-in tools for disk cloning, users can choose to use certain third-party programs, such as Acronis True Image. 

Acronis True Image is an integrated application that allows you to clone base drives (MBR and GPT) to other drives, even if the target drive has different capacities.  The process is simple and data can be migrated seamlessly.  For Acronis True Image 2017 or earlier, clone from Acronis bootable media.
 However, starting with Acronis True Image 2018, you can clone directly without bootable media.  In addition to disk cloning, the program also has disk backup, partition backup and disk restore functions.  Its latest version is Acronis True Image 2021.

Disk Cloning


●This program cannot be used to clone dynamic disks.  

● Note that in Windows, cloned drives will not have drive letters.  When you start a new device from this drive, a drive letter is automatically assigned.  When using Acronis True Image to clone to a smaller SSD, make sure the target drive has enough capacity to fit the contents of the source drive.
