    How to clone a hard drive?

    I'm a little confused about one thing with this guide.

    If my existing HDD is unplugged, and the only thing plugged in is my new, blank, SSD...where is the system image being stored for Windows to restore from?

    Edit: I missed the part where it says you'll need an extra HDD to do this, my bad. Do you know if an external HDD would work to store the system image on?

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

  4. Clone Existing Windows 10 Pro C Drive To New System?

    Multiple partitions found when trying to clone C: drive

    I am having a problem trying to clone my C: drive on my Windows 10 64-bit system.

    I decided to install a new, bigger hard drive and clone my C: drive onto it. I noticed though that my C: drive has 6 separate partitions for some unknown reason.

    300 MB recovery partition

    99 MB EFI system partition

    929.87 MB C: drive boot

    450 MB recovery partition

    350 MB recovery partition

    350 MB recovery partition

    I have no idea how I got so many!

    I'd prefer the new drive to not have so many partitions when I clone it, but I have no idea if I should try to first delete some of the partitions prior to cloning (and if so, which ones), or to just try and clone only certain partitions onto the new drive
    (and again, if so, which ones).

    Can anyone help me out here?
