I am trying to figure out how to clone a client’s OS to a new SSD drive for his laptop.


I am experimenting on his SSD trying to clone my Windows 10 to it.


I am putting the cloned SSD into a different computer to test it. I can access the Windows 10 clone on the new SSD but I am unable to access the recovery options.

I would like to see if I can restore it to factory specs so that I can do the same when I actually do this for his Windows 10.


So, why can I not access the recovery option here? And what can I do to access it.


Will I need to do the Acronis Total Recovery option? (Correct name for this option???)


Anyhow, any help will be greatly appreciated.

You should just Clone the the old drive and all Partitions to the SSD as they are.


1/ Ensure the SSD can accomadate the used space from the old one.

2/ I would Slave the SSD to the Laptop via a Powered Usb Sata Adapter.

3/ Use any Software that came with the SSD to do the Clone or.....


I have done many times and prefer to use MiniTool Partition Wizard to do the Clone { Copy Partition Wizard }.

Once done swap out the drives and boot from the SSD.
