  2. Cloning an external HDD

    Doing a clean Install while switching hard drive is always recommend due to the fact that the hardware configuration of each PC is different.

    What I suggest is to Clone the other data partitions except C:

    Use Macrium reflect a freeware for this.

    Macrium Cloning Question

    cloning (not imaging) speed -- Macrium vs DD

    Semantics.

    A clone directly copies a disk to another one without any intermediate step involved.

    That is not how FFU works as far as I can tell. You still create an image file which you deploy to a new drive.

    FFU is sort of halfway between imaging and cloning as the the image is more a sector by sector copy.

    However, in the end it still needs two steps to clone to new drive, and this is more like Macrium backup and restore.

    Unless I am mistaken, I cannot see a way to capture data on one drive and SIMULTANEOUSLY deploy it to a new drive which is exactly what Macrium Reflect does when cloning.

    In the end, it does not matter except you have to be careful about comparing oranges and apples as you need to take all steps into account when comparing speeds.

    As an aside, Reflect's Rapid Delta Cloning (not free version) is awesomely fast if you have an existing clone, and you re-clone provided extent of changes do not involve a build upgrade.
