    how to clone my old hdd to my new one ?


    I have my windows 10 and my programs installed on my Samsung ssd
    also I have 1 WD BLACK HARD DRIVES
    1 WD blue
    1 WD green
    also a hitachi 500 GB
    that hitachi recently becomes soo slow
    when I open a folder with videos it takes a lot of time to load the videos
    also hdsentinel report its performance at 30 % only but no bad sectors

    ok I want to replace it with a new 2 TB black western digital I bought

    I have some maybe 10 GB of data like personal videos and also pictures

    how can I clone it with macrium and keep the same letter (E)

    also I dont want all of these data from my old hdd maybe just 1 GB of data that I need to transfer
    any tips ?
    my board only has 4 sata ports

    do you recommend me to use macrium or just copy what data I need to my WD GREEN DRIVE
    remove the hitachi drive and plug my new hdd and then copy paste the data to it ?

    :)

    Thank you for reply. After cloning the hdd, is the new hdd good to go? can i use it as my main drive after removing the old one? or do i need to do something after cloning?

    Moving to New SSD Drive

    When I changed form a HDD to a SSD on my desktop I used EaseUS ToDoBackup and cloned the old drive to the new one.

    I kept all of my stuff and also had a backup with the HDD.

    Just a thought.. if your Hitachi drive is failing (check the SMART parameters and do a surface scan with e.g. Macrorit Diskscanner) then Macrium will not be able to create an image of it.

    SMART does not report any bad sectors on the hitachi drive
    but I dot want to create an image fro that drive
    the OS also my programs and games are not installed on it
    just some videos and pictures which also I don't need all of them just some

    I bought a new 2 tb WD black and I want to replace that hitachi with my new drive .

    Sometimes even if no bad sectors are reported, a surface scan picks sthg up which may cause disk imaging to fail.

    Temporarily remove one of your other drives and copy the data. You can sort out the drive letters later.

    Or if you have a suitable enclosure or connection, connect one drive as a USB drive and copy.

    If you don't want all the files then you don't want to clone it use built in robocop it's very fast and you can just copy what you want you can set drive letter in dusk manager at any time

    how to clone my old hdd to my new one ?

    If the old hard drive is failing, and you have data on it that you don't want to lose then I would suggest you leave your SSD connected with the OS, leave the old hard drive connected, connect the new hard drive to a SATA port, and copy the whole thing over to the new hard drive. Then physically install the hard drives you want installed. You can adjust drive letters and partition sizes with MiniTool partition wizard free. (I know you can do most of that in Windows disk management, but MiniTool is more capable, safer, and easier, IMHO).

    The reason I suggest doing it that way is twofold - it will be faster to sort through things and delete what you want from the new hard drive. Second, sorting through and deleting files from the old hard drive might just push it over the edge to complete failure and you will lose what you want to keep.
