Imagine you had a 128GB primary hard drive on your computer and then you ran out of space and as a result, needed a bigger one or just got tired of your old hard drive and wanted to make the move to a much faster Solid State Drive (SSD), the usual path would be to install windows on your new hard drive, then copy your Library and all the other files that you need manually to the new hard drive using an enclosure to connect the old one via USB.
Having personally done this a bunch of times, I can testify to how much of a pain this is.
Enter Easus’ To Do backup, a freeware software that allows you to clone hard drives, in simple steps. This saves you the pain of reinstalling Windows on the new hard drive and manually copying and pasting your old stuff. Cloned drives are pretty much identical to the original, meaning after cloning, the new hard drive will boot up in Windows with all your old files and settings, just like it did on the old one.
Importantly, the app was built with Windows 10 in mind, so even if you’re on the latest and greatest from Microsoft you should be able to clone a hard drive with no issues on it. See this guide: How to clone a hard drive on
