What is disk cloning and what is it useful for?

Disk cloning means copying all partitions on one disk to another disk and ensuring that the files in all partitions will not be changed or corrupted. Usually an excellent disk cloning software allows us to adjust the size and location of each destination partition on the destination disk according to our needs, which is very useful for us to copy a small disk to a large disk or copy a large disk to a small disk. Since disk cloning can ensure the data consistency between the destination disk and the source disk, it is usually used by us as a means of data backup or data migration. The following are some application scenarios of disk cloning:
    1. Upgrade a hard disk to a bigger one to get more free space.
    2. Upgrade a hard disk to an SSD hard drive for better performance.
    3. Generate a copy of the source disk to quickly replace the source disk or restore files when the source disk fails or loses files.
