How to migrate OS and data from an HDD to an SSD or one SSD to the other SSD

If you want to speed up the processing speed of a PC that has slowed down due to deterioration over time, or if you want to save more data, one method is “replacement” of an HDD or an SSD. For example, by replacing the drive built into your personal computer with the one with a larger capacity, more data can be saved and work efficiency can be improved.
However, an “OS”, which can be said to be the brain of a personal computer, is always installed on HDDs and SSDs. Therefore, when replacing (such as replacing an HDD with an SSD or replacing one SSD with the new SSD), you need to migrate an OS or newly install an OS on the replaced new HDD or SSD. This content explains how to migrate an OS.
