    If you can connect both drives to your PC at the same time and the SSD is of the same or greater size to the HDD, then you can use the free version of Macrium Reflect to clone the HDD onto the SSD . . .

    Cloning a hdd to ssd

    Cloning HDD having Windows 10 to SSD

    Hello,

    If I clone HDD having windows 10 to SSD then will it also copy the drivers and all?

    I am thinking to use cloning software available on internet like EaseUS, Partionwizard, etc.

    Can anyone confirms that If I clone then will I get everything as it is there in HDD with driver and when I boot SSD then do I need to reinstall the driver again?

    Thanks in advance.
