    Default Transferring HDD to SSD

    I want to transfer all the contents of the hard drive to a SSD on my Dell 3440 Laptop. I will use Aomei Backupper. Which should I use - an image or a clone? Which is easiest and better?

    Default Re: Transferring HDD to SSD

    Sometimes the ssd comes with a program to do this.

    Image or Clone ?

    OK, A clone is an exact copy of the original Drive, which you can boot into like the original. (assuming Backupper doesn't fail)

    A Image is a generally a Single Compressed file of the drive. You can have multiple Images on the one drive

    Example: these are multiple images (a Weeks worth of backups) of one of my own computers using Macrium Reflect.

    Click image for larger version.

    Some programs Like Macrium Reflect will allow you to boot the image (like a virtual Machine)
