This article will show you how to configure your old and new hard disk drives and describe four methods used to copy the contents of the old one to the new one.
To make hard disk copy is easy by using EaseUS Partition Master. EaseUS Partition Master supports to copy entire hard disk to another (2TB+) and keep your data safe with a new cloned one. What's more, it can Resize/Move/Create/Copy/Deleted/Format/Hide and Unhide server and PC partitions in Windows System.
Someone once told me that they backup their data by using an online feature of backup software, it copy things onto a server that far from their company. I have to say, this costs too much: time and internet bandwidth. There is a better way for doing so, that is hard disk copy.
The hard disk copy is not common copy and paste; it is sector by sector hard disk copy. To explain sector by sector hard disk copy in a simple way is that everything on disk will be backup, yes, everything. So the copy will be exactly the same as the original data, even you meet bad sector issue, it can not stop the step of the procedure. Unlike disk image, there is a wonderful advantage of the hard disk copy: you may choose the backed up files, and restore it to its original place.
And there is a kind of troublesome situation: the computer was affected by some virus, and you can not clean it even by formatting entire hard disk. At this time, the simplest way to solve this problem is restore the hard disk copy, and then the virus is gone, and your data keeps the same. Nobody will feel sad that his computer lost nothing but virus.
Hard Disk Copy is a new feature of EaseUS Partition Master. It is especially useful if you want to replace the older smaller hard disk by a newer larger hard disk without having to install the Operating System and applications once again. The two disks are exactly same in each sector. By backing up, if your computer crashes or has a virus infection, you can still get your files back easily on backup disks or other safe places where you choose to back up your data.
This method helps you copy the partition or whole hard disk to another one, if you want to backup the partition or whole hard disk to an image archive, you may use another free backup software - EaseUS Todo Backup, which provides easy-to-use interface to backup and restore your system, disk and partition within minutes.
