why not move stored data to the new drive, freeing up the current drive?

 

if you had bought a SSD (for the OS), you usually get migration software to use

Acronis True Image, Macrium reflect and Paragon Hard Disk Manager have been very reliable.

i have an SSD for the OS and programs, that is only 50% full, i have a 2TB HDD for storage of other files and crap, this one is full, i have a 4TB i am replacing it with.

 

great thanks, i had forgotten about paragon, i have used this one before and had no problems, but i will give macrium a try see how that goes in comparison, never used that one yet.

went with paragon, far easier, but like the old paragon better not the latest version.

You can use Clonezilla too, https://clonezilla.org

 

though clonezilla has some limitations - it can't do differential or incremental backups and can't do "online" cloning

 

I use older versions of macrium reflect free or easeus todo backup free for HDD cloning and doing incremental backups

I have tried both Acronis True Image and Macrium Reflect.  They both work well.

I have been using macrium reflect for quite some time and would surely suggest that.

I have been using Norton ghost for years, including migrating HDD to SSD.
