About Acronis Migrate Easy

Acronis Migrate Easy is a program that allows you to clone your old hard disk to another one with the “Disk Clone” feature. It can migrate all data, operating systems, programs, settings, and everything else from one disk to another. Besides, its “Add New Disk” feature can help users to quickly and easily deploy a new hard disk on your PC or laptop by creating and formatting new partitions on the new hard disk.

For disk clone, it provides two clone methods: one is “Automatic” and another one is “Manual”. The automatic clone is to copy all partitions on the old disk to the new disk and make the new hard drive bootable. All the partitions will be automatically resized to fit the new hard disk. But you have to remove the old hard disk when data migration is done. The manual mode will give you full control over the disk cloning process, such as adjusting partition size, creating new partitions on both disks.
