    Clone Windows Partition


    I want to clone my windows partition to a 250GB SSD. C currently resides on a 3TB drive that has 4 other partitions on it. Using Macrium I can see the C partition fine along with the rest. I only want the C to be cloned and not the rest which obviously wont fit anyway.

    Do I just highlight the C partition and hit the clone? Once cloned and booting off the SSD I will delete the old C partition and expand the following partition into its space.

    :)

  2. 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?

    Replacing an existing Hard Disk by cloning

    I've never used EaseUS, but AOEMI Partition Assistant works well for cloning Windows.

    With AOEMI you clone only the C:\ drive, not the whole HDD/SSD.

    Other partitions can be done via the backup option, or you can create new partitions later

    via Windows Disk Manager and copy data directly to the partition.

    I have never tried using a external drive via USB though (I have an e-SATA dock on my case, which is the same as connecting to a SATA port on the motherboard).

    Using a USB may cause issues with the MBR not being written to the cloned OS drive, but this should not

    be an issue if cloning back to the original HDD as the MBR on the original HDD should still be viable.

    Free Partition Manager - AOMEI Partition Assistant Standard

    Note that when doing a cloning operation you start with unallocated space on the HDD you want

    to clone to, not a partitioned space.
