    Clonezilla works great but the interface is a bit clunky. Depending on the brand of the drives (ie if they are WD) you might eligible for a free copy of acronis true-image from WD.

    I got a free copy of Acronis with my drive - probably the most user friendly and easiest way to copy/clone drives. Can't praise it enough

    Acronis used to run a 30 day home trial - more than enough time to do what you needed to do for free

    Tier 10 jet now, loving it - but all alone.

    Edit: ignore me, posted in error, can't delete as I'm on my phone.
