    Step-by-Step Guide to Moving Your C Partition to a New Disk Backup Your Data:

    • Before making any changes, back up your important files to an external drive or cloud storage to prevent data loss.

    Get the Right Tools:

    • You'll need a disk cloning tool. Some popular options are:
    • Macrium Reflect (free version available)
    • Acronis True Image
    • EaseUS Todo Backup (free version available)

    Prepare the New Disk:

    Connect the new disk to your computer. If it's an internal disk, you'll need to install it inside your computer. For an external disk, connect it via USB or other appropriate ports.

    Initialize the new disk if it’s brand new (you can do this in Disk Management in Windows).

    Install and Run the Cloning Software:

    Download and install your chosen cloning software.

    Open the software and look for the disk cloning feature.

    Select the Source and Destination:

    Choose your current C partition (source).

    Select the new disk (destination).

    Start the Cloning Process:

    Follow the on-screen instructions to start the cloning process. This might take some time depending on the size of your C partition.

    Change Boot Order:

    After cloning, you need to change the boot order in the BIOS/UEFI to boot from the new disk.

    Restart your computer and enter the BIOS/UEFI settings (usually by pressing a key like F2, F12, DEL, or ESC during startup).

    Locate the boot order settings and set the new disk as the primary boot device.

    Save the changes and exit BIOS/UEFI.

    Verify the Cloning Process:

    Boot your computer from the new disk.

    Check if everything is working as expected and that all your data is intact.

    Reformat the Old Disk (Optional):

    Once you’re confident that everything is working fine, you can reformat the old disk and use it for storage or other purposes.

    Additional Tips:

    Ensure that the new disk has enough space to accommodate the C partition.

    Make sure your computer is plugged in and avoid interruptions during the cloning process.

    If you encounter any issues, consult the user guide or support forums of the cloning software you’re using.

    To move only the C: partition or to move all partitions third party software is required.

    The third party software may have free or pay versions.

    (Acronis, Aoemi, EaseUS, Macrium, Paragon, etc.)
