Move my Operating System to a Different Hard Drive without Reinstalling

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I am fed up of the low disk space problem, which does not let me restore data or install new applications. Most importantly, my computer works at a very low speed. I want to upgrade my old hard disk drive by transferring my existing operating system to a different hard drive without reinstalling it. Please tell me the correct way to do it.

Move my Operating System to a Different Hard Drive without Reinstalling


This is a common occurrence and there is no need to panic. Considering your situation, you must immediately move your Operating System to another hard drive. This will upgrade your hard disk drive that will enhance smooth running of your computer. To do this, you need a professional system clone software that will transfer your operating system to the desired hard drive securely. Before you download the clone, you will need to check if it supports disk cloning and partition cloning in your version of operating system. Once you have downloaded, follow the simple steps mentioned below:

  • From the left part of the main interface, select "Clone" option. Then, select "Partition Clone" to copy the system.
  • In the pop-up window, select any drive you want to be as source partition. Then click on "Next".
  • Select a hard drive as the new location.
  • Press "Start Clone" to begin.

You can select any clone method: quick clone or sector-by-sector clone while cloning by just ticking the option on the lower part of the visible interface. The default one is usually the quick clone. 

By the end of this, your OS will be in the new disk, and you can delete the original one.
