How do I clone NVMe SSD to NVMe SSD?

“I am trying to move my Windows install from a 256GB to 512GB NVMe SSD in a laptop with only one M.2 slot and one SATA slot. What’s the best efficient way to do it? Or is there any reliable NVMe SSD cloning software recommended? Any help will be appreciated!”

Nvme Ssd

NVMe SSD is the solid-state drives that adopt the Non-Volatile Memory Express interface. It means the data travel over the PCI Express (PCIe) interface on your computer’s motherboard. In this way, the drive and motherboard can build up a more direct connection because inside data don’t have to travel through a Serial Advanced Technology Attachment (SATA) controller. So, more users tend to upgrade their SATA SSD with faster NVMe SSD, or clone NVME SSD to another larger NVMe SSD for further upgrade. For either purpose, what you will need is a reliable NVMe SSD cloning tool.

Choose an excellent NVMe SSD cloning software (Windows PC)

To clone MVMe SSD to NVMe SSD, or SATA (AHCI) SSD to PCIe (NVMe) SSD, you can make use of the reliable NVMe SSD cloning tool: AOMEI Partition Assistant Professional. It comes with the following shining points to make disk clone easy and flexible.

clone different size or brands ( such as Kingston, Samsung, Crucial, Intel, WD, etc) NVMe SSD in all editions of Windows  11, 10, 8, 7, XP and Vista (32-bit&64-bit);
clone an entire NVMe SSD to another NVMe SSD drive via “Disk Clone Wizard”.
clone just a partition from one NVMe SSD to another NVMe SSD through “Partition Clone”.
boot from the cloned SSD drive successfully after clone.
align SSD partitions to optimize its reading and writing performance.

Easy Steps to clone NVMe SSD to NVMe SSD in Windows 11/10/8/7

Now, connect the destination NVMe SSD drive to your PC (if there is only one NVMe M.2 slot, use a USB adapter or USB enclosure to connect the second drive) and make sure it is detected. You should back up data on the destination NVMe SSD drive because they will be deleted during the clone process. Then you can download and install the NVMe SSD cloning software Demo version for a free trial.

Step 2. In the pop-up window, choose a way to clone NVMe SSD to NVMe SSD based on the specific situation.


Clone Disk Quickly: only clone used space to the destination SSD drive, allowing for cloning larger NVMe SSD to smaller NVMe SSD.
Sector-by-Sector Clone: clone both used and unused space from source SSD to destination SSD, only supporting cloning NVMe SSD to larger NVMe SSD drive.

Step 3. Choose the source SSD drive, here we choose the system disk as an example.

Step 4. Select the target NVMe SSD drive and click “Next”. Please remember to tick “Optimize the performance of SSD” option.

Step 5. Now, you can adjust partition size on the destination NVMe SSD drive, or keep the default settings and click “Next”.


Clone without resizing partitions: means keeping the size of source partitions.
Fit partitions to entire disk: means the program automatically adjusts the size of partition to fit the entire disk.
Edit partitions on this disk: means resizing partition size on the disk by you.

Step 6. Back to the main interface, click “Apply” and “Proceed” to commit the pending operation.


Once it’s done, you can remove the old NVMe SSD drive, install the new SSD and then boot from it.

Remove the old NVMe SSD drive: cut the power and remove the battery from your PC, press and hold the power button for seconds to release residual power, and then remove the case cover and locate the SSD on the motherboard, unscrew the screws and unplug the old SSD drive.

Install Ssd

Install the cloned NVMe SSD drive: insert the cloned SSD into the socket, press the back end of the SSD towards the motherboard and then screw to secure the SSD, and finally place the case cover and battery back, connect the power and boot from the destination drive (PS.: if the source NVMe SSD and destination NVMe SSD are of different partition tables MBR or GPT, you also have to change Legacy to UEFI boot mode, or UEFI to Legacy correspondingly).

Bottom line

So, with the top NVMe SSD drive cloning software, you can easily clone NVMe SSD drive to NVMe SSD drive in Windows 10, 8, 7. Besides, if you need to delete everything from the old SSD drive completely after clone for reuse, you can make use of the “SSD Secure Erase” function of AOMEI Partition Assistant Professional. To enjoy those amazing functions on Windows Server, there is AOMEI Partition Assistant Server for your requirements
