Disk Imaging Software for Bare Metal Restore

LeighWardle asked
Last Modified: 2020-03-17
Hi Experts,

I want to clone the 256 GB SSD on my Microsoft Surface Pro to a new Microsoft Laptop 3 also with 256 GB SSD.

So the software needs to have bootable recovery media.

I have attempted to use the following software packages, but the recovery media either will not boot or crashes:

  • Acronis
  • ShadowProtect SPX
  • AOMEI Backupper Workstation
