Why You Need Windows Cloning Software?

Windows cloning software can help us copying all the contents of Windows operating system, disk or partition from one disk to another and ensure data consistency. Here are some of the common reasons why you need Windows cloning software:

✦ 1. Upgrade to a larger capacity drive: Insufficient storage space will cause the Windows operating system to fail to run smoothly. Replacing the disk where Windows is running with a larger capacity hard drive can effectively solve this problem.

✦ 2. Migrate to SSD for better performance: The performance of SSD (solid state disk) is much faster than traditional mechanical hard disk, so migrating from mechanical hard disk to SSD is the best way to improve the performance of the Windows operating system.

✦ 3. Make a backup to restore Windows 11 in the event of a disaster: Since data consistency can be guaranteed, Windows cloning software can be used as a backup solution, for example, we can clone data from one disk to another, and we can quickly recover data from a backup disk if one disk is corrupted.

✦ 4. Make a copy of Windows 11 working environment to use it on other computers: If you have multiple computers and you want all of them to have the same Windows 11 working environment, you can make a copy of Windows 11 from one computer 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.
