How I copied a HDD onto a SSD using Acronis True Image backup

We saw how I cloned a HDD onto a SSD using Acronis True Image in this page. Unfortunately it is not always possible to have both disks connected to the computer to clone one onto the other one. For instance when both disks need to use the same motherboard connector. The solution in this case consist in doing a backup of the original disk and to copy the content of the backup onto the new disk. We are going to see step by step in this tutorial how I did it using once again Acronis True Image.

How I cloned a HDD onto a SSD using Acronis True Image

You may sometimes want to replace your operating system disk with a bigger one or with a ssd in order to improve your computer performance. One solution is to reinstall the operating system and all your programs onto the new disk or ssd and to restore the additional files (documents, photos, movies…) from a backup. It is not necessary a bad idea as that would allow you to start with a fresh and clean installation of the operating system, but it is something that may require a lot of time and you may not have anymore all the installers, licenses or drivers to reinstall everything. An other quicker solution consists in cloning the original disk with everything (the operating system, programs and files) onto a new disk. It’s something rather easy to do using a software like Acronis True Image and I will show you¬†step by step how I did it in this page.
