Acronis Migrate Easy 7.0 lets you clone one hard disk drive to another. Should the size of the source hard disk drive differ from the target hard disk drive, exisiting partitions can be resized during the process of cloning.
Acronis Migrate Easy 7.0 helps you to clone an old hard disk drive to a new one. Partitions can be transferred either with preserved sizes and locations ("as is"), or with any desired changes in size (as large as data actually stored on a partition permits). That is, you can migrate from a 100 GB disk to an 80 GB disk as long as you have less than 80 GB of data on the original disk.
Acronis Migrate Easy 7.0 also allows you to add a new hard disk drive into your system and create partitions within just a few minutes.
Acronis Migrate Easy 7.0 is intended mostly for end-users, who want to install a new hard disk drive on their home or office PC, and migrate their operating system and data from an old hard disk drive to a new one. It also allows you to securely destroy data on an old hard disk drive and repartition it after the cloning procedure.
In order to install all of your programs and data on a new drive, you first have to collect your operating system CD, along with every program CD, update patch and security patch that you've installed over the years. You also need to find all of your registration codes for each program and reconfigure each program to your specific needs. This operation can take hours, if not days, and you are supposed to know where all of your applications, registration codes and updates are located. If you forget just one security update, you can put your system at risk.
With Acronis Migrate Easy 7.0, you can transfer the entire contents of a hard disk drive to a new one in 30-50 minutes, and all the applications remain fully functional.
