What is the best tool to migrate Windows 10 to SSD
Since Windows has no built-in tools for us to use, in order to migrate Windows 10 to SSD from HDD, you can only choose third-party software.
Here, I recommend you to use AOMEI Partition Assistant Professional, which is a Windows partition manager owned by AOMEI Tech Co., Ltd. Founded in 2010, the company mainly provides products related to “data backup” and “disk partition”, and is committed to protecting user data security. AOMEI Partition Assistant provides many useful functions for users to use, and they are all safe and will not harm your data.
I came across this tool after replacing an SSD for my laptop and used one of the features “Migrate OS to SSD” to complete the migration, which moved my Windows 10 from HDD to SSD. Then I can use Windows 10 directly in the SSD and keep all settings as normal.
What impresses me about the whole process is that the tool is very friendly for users with no computer experience, since it has a graphical user interface, you just need to click with the mouse. In addition, its operation steps are also very simple, with instructions for each step, and users can complete each operation according to the guidance. And you need to click “Apply” at the end to finally generate the operation, so you don’t have to worry about your delay and serious consequences.
If you are a gamer, besides Migrate OS to SSD, I also recommend you to try App Mover. Because this function can move the installed games from HDD to SSD without losing data, so you can avoid a lot of time to re-download the game, which really helped me a lot. If you want to migrate the entire HDD to SSD or Clone SSD to larger SSD, then you can try Disk Clone.
Tip: To clone only data disk to SSD, you can turn to AOMEI Partition Assistant Standard Edition, which supports clone HDD to SSD free. If you also try to clone Windows or migrate Windows, please use Professional Edition. It requires a fee, but there is a trial version, you can click on the link I gave to download.
