Migrating Partitions from one PC to another - what backup and restore software to use?

Hi Experts,

The screen on my old Microsoft Surface Pro 4 tablet has become unglued, so I am replacing it with a new Microsoft Surface Pro tablet.

I want to backup the C:drive to an image and restore the image to the new PC.

I've been using ShadowProtect v5, but the recovery media throws a fatal error when booting on the new PC.

So I'm looking for suggestions for another product to do the job.
I've had a brief look at AOMEI Backupper Pro Edition.

The product must let me create bootable media.

The latest from Storagecraft is Shadow Protect SPX.
Have you tried it?
Take Acronis True Image 2018 and download universal restore tools. You can restore the backup to other hardware and chipset architecture.
Universal restore allows you to add the drivers for the new hardware.

Thanks, pgm554.

The recovery media I tried was for Storagecraft Shadow Protect SPX.
Pity it would not boot.
