So I bought a new laptop a few weeks ago and it came with a 1 TB 5400 RPM hd. I just bought a 1 TB samsung SSD.


I have used Clonzilla for years but I am out of the loop on if it will successfully clone recovery partitions and all.


Is there a better software where it will clone everything and make sure it is bootable?


I don't mind paying if it is not free.

I think clonezilla will just do the work fine. If you worry about losing the recovery partition, you can create a bootable disc/USB of the system instead. For this, you may try easeus todo backup or paragon backup&recovery. Both can do complete disk clone and create bootable disk.

Yes, by definition cloning software has to include everything. Cloning is the process of duplicating an entire drive exactly onto another drive.
