About a year ago I took a defective drive out of a Windows 8.1 or 10 laptop (laptop was still basically functioning, but some bad sectors) and mirrored it to a new and, I think, larger hard drive.  It either asked/was told to ignore bad sectors, and the image worked perfectly.

I'm trying to remember if it was Macrium Refect Free that I used.  Does anyone know if this product will mirror an old to new drive, where the new is larger than the old?  (The old drive had two or three partitions as I recall, which was no problem).\
