Cloning Solid State to Hybrid

305 Views
Last Modified: 2017-04-11
Has anyone successfully cloned a Solid State Hard drive to a Hybrid Hard drive?  If so, what tool did you use? Did you run into any difficulties?  The SSD is much smaller than the new SSHD so we don't have that complication.

Thank you for the suggestions!  My company will lean towards free so I will try EaseUs first, I've used some of their utilities in the past, I was just worried about SSD to SSHD and what the ramifications of the different media types might be to cloning.  The cloning is scheduled for Monday, I'll report back with how it goes! :)

I completed the clone yesterday using free utilities, EaseUs ToDo Backup for the clone, then EaseUs Partition Master to re-partition the new drive to use all the available space.  It went smoothly and the user now has his system back with his new 1 TB Hybrid HD.  Thank you all!!
