Hello and Good Afternoon Everyone,

           This weekend I plan on digitally cloning my 500 GB Hard Disk Drive (HDD) to a 1 TB Solid State Drive (SSD) which brings me to the crux of this question.  I am wondering what digital cloning tool I can use which would be independent of any laptop hookup and data back software.  The digital cloning tool which I own, but have not used yet, is this one located at Amazon https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B073W4YDFQ/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1  Given the specs of this instrument, I am wondering if it can be used to clone my laptop's 500 GB HDD to a blank 1 TB SSD.   In my own personal opinion, I believe I can use it to accomplish this goal, but, I am uncertain.

            Thanks in advance for any feedback given to this question.
