Windows 10 Overview

After Microsoft released Windows 10 on January 21, 2015, Windows 10 quickly became the most popular version of Windows, mainly due to its powerful features and ease of use, as well as its free upgrade strategy. Windows 10 has six editions: Home Edition, Professional Edition, Enterprise Edition, Education Edition, Professional Workstation Edition, and IoT Core Edition, which can meet the business needs from individuals to companies. As of April 12, 2022, the official version of Windows 10 has been updated to version 19044.1645 and the preview version has been updated to version 21390. Microsoft's financial report shows that Windows 10 has 1.3 billion active users and more than 1.66 billion installed units.

The Windows 10 operating system has been greatly improved in ease of use and security. In addition to integrating new technologies such as cloud services, smart mobile devices, and natural human-computer interaction, it has also optimized and improved support for hardware such as solid-state drives, biometrics, and high-resolution screens, and so on. From a technical point of view, the Windows 10 operating system is an excellent consumer-grade operating system.

Why You Need Windows 10 Cloning Software?

Over time, the partition where the Windows 10 is located becomes smaller and smaller, which will cause Windows to become slower and slower. In addition, the continuous upgrading of Windows will cause traditional mechanical hard drives to fail to meet the performance requirements, and replacing a mechanical hard drive with an SSD (solid state disk) is the easiest way to solve performance problems. Here are some of the common reasons why you need Windows cloning software:

✦ 1. Upgrade a disk with a larger capacity disk for more storage space.

✦ 2. Replace a mechanical disk with an SSD for better performance.

✦ 3. Make a backup of Windows, disk or partition to restore data in the event of a disaster.

✦ 3. Make a copy of Windows 10 working environment to use it on other computers.

* Disk alignment:

  1. 1M (Recommended): 1M alignment is a subset of 4K alignment, and partitions aligned by 1M are always 4K alignment, so it can help you get the best performance of an SSD. In Windows Vista and later OSs, partitions created using Windows Disk Management always aligned by 1M bytes, regardless of whether the disk is an SSD.
  2. 4K: Ensure that the start sector of each destination partition is always aligned by 4K bytes, which is very important for the best performance of an SSD.
  3. Cylinder: Ensure that the start sector of each destination partition always starts at the beginning of a cylinder. Windows XP and previous OSs use this alignment mode.
  4. None: The start sector of each destination partition is not aligned.

* The Sector by sector clone partiton option enables you to clone all sectors from source partition to destination partition.

Step 6. Hasleo Backup Suite starts cloning Windows 10 to the destination location. Please note that the time required for cloning is related to the size of the data that needs to be cloned, so please be patient.
