How is the best method to upgrade to a larger boot drive? I have an older 256GB SSD as my current boot drive and I'm wanting to transfer the OS partition to a larger new SSD drive and have the new drive be the boot drive. Thank you.

Hello Jim,

It is possible to clone an entire hard drive or specific partitions on a hard drive. This is useful if you are upgrading to a larger hard drive. With Macrium Reflect you can boot the target disk on the same system after cloning. Cloning your hard drive creates a bootable new hard drive with the state of your computer at the time you undertook the clone.You can clone to a hard drive installed in your computer or to a hard drive installed in a USB hard-drive Caddy.

Please read the KB article below for more information on Cloning a disk:

Kind Regards, 
Daniel
