Hard disk clone is useful for large enterprises to provide new computers with a standard set of applications. It is also a way of backing up system and data. AOMEI Partition Assistant is a hard disk clone tool that allows you to clone HDD from large disk to smaller. You don’t have to copy the files and folders one by one. It is also easier and avoids you with repeated boring work.
AOMEI Partition Assistant is a free partition software that also allows you to migrate Os to SSD, resize partition, extend partition, split partition, move partition, copy partition, create partition and merge partitions on Windows 10/8/7/Vista/XP, etc.
Now AOMEI Partition Assistant 6.5 has released!
1. Added “SSD Secure Erase Wizard”: securely erase your SSD to reset the SSD to its factory state for peak performance.
2. Enhanced Windows To Go Creator: support to choose a system in WIM file.

How to clone hard drive to another disk with AOMEI Partition Assistant?
Step1. Download, install and launch AOMEI Partition Assistant. Right click the source hard disk (here is Disk 1) you want to copy and select “Copy Disk” in the drop-down menu. If you only clone only system drive to new disk, for example, move Windows 7 to SSD, click “Migrate OS to SSD” instead.
Step2. In the pop-up window, AOMEI Partition Assistant provides you with two methods for cloning hard disk: “Copy Disk Quickly” which only copies the used space of the disk. “Sector-by-Sector Copy” will help you to copy all sectors of the disk no matter whether it is used or not. Then click “Next” to continue(here we will take “Copy Disk Quickly” for example).
Step3. Now select the destination disk to put the data of source disk on, then click “Next”. Here please pay attention to the target disk size, and make sure that its size is not less than the size of the data you are going to copy, at least equal to the latter.
Step4. In this window, this program allows you to adjust the partition size on the destination disk. There are three copy options to choice. After finishing the adjustment, please click “Next”.
Step5. You can preview the disk cloning operating by viewing the “Pending Operations”. To commit the “Pending Operations”, please click “Apply”.
