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.

1. How to migrate an OS to new HDD and SSD
1-1. Prepare a new HDD and SSD
1-2. Delete unnecessary data on the original HDD and SSD to reduce the weight of the data
1-3. Create a clone from the original HDD and SSD built into your personal computer to the newly prepared HDD and SSD
1-4. Completely format the original HDD and SSD data
2. Clean installation of an OS
3. Conclusion
HDDs and SSDs are consumables, so it is unavoidable that these deteriorate depending on the intended use, environment, and years of use. As a result, it naturally leads to a decrease in the performance of the personal computer. However, it is possible to improve them by replacing the HDD or SSD. At first glance, it may seem difficult to migrate an OS, however if you use a dedicated device or software, you can easily do it, so please give it a try.
