Step 1: Selete Source Disk Drive
Disk clone happens between two disk drives: source disk drive and destination disk drive. All data and files are copyed from source disk drive to destination disk drive. Please make sure your PC at least have two hard drives attached. Here you select the source disk drive firstly. We have selected a disk drive for you by default. It's often the disk drive holding your Windows drive, such as C drive. Then, click the Next button to select destination disk drive.
Step 2: Selete Desination Disk Drive
Destination disk drive is the disk drive to save data and files from source disk drive. You have selected one as the source disk drive in last step. If you PC has two disk drives attached, the other will be selected as destination one by default. The desitinatin disk drive need not be partitioned or formatted, as all partition on it will be deleted and all data on it it will be erased permanently. It can be a brandly new disk drive bought from NewEgg or an old one I don't know where your get from. If it is an old one, be sure to check it for any useful data files, and backup these files; otherwise, they will be erased and lost forver.
Step 3: Preview Desination Disk Drive
We often say "What you see is what you get." In this step you can preview your destination disk drive. You can see what will the destination drive be look like before the clone process really starts. In the partiton layout, you can know the number of partitions, each partiton's total size and used size, file system and etc.
Besides, we provide two clone options. One option is for partition size and it has two choices: make partitions on destination disk keep the same size with partitions on source disk OR adjust size of partitions on destination disk dynamically. We keep the same size by default. But when the capacity of destination is larger than source disk, some space on detination disk will be unused. What a waste of it! So if you want to make use of all space, you can select choince two. we increase the size of partitions on destination disk. When clone process finishes, you will find that partitions on destination disk are larger than partitons on source disk. Don't worry about your data. We just change the partiton size; all files and data are the same.
Another option is whether to copy all sectors on source disk drive. We know that disk storage drive is consisted of tens of thousands of sectors. Each sector is 512 byte in size. All files and data are stored on these sectors. When disk and partition is not full, not all sectors are used by files. For speed, we just copy the sectors used by files. But sometimes this way is not the most reliable. So we provide this optition for some unreliable case. This option is off by default. You can turn it on when you need it.
In one word, these clone options are just some extra setting of disk clone, don't be confused by them. If you don't know how to make a choice, just ingore them and use the default.
Step 4: Perform Clone
All correct choices are made. It's time to perform the clone operation. Disk Clone Wizard Kit copys each partititon and its data from source disk to destination disk one by one and show you the progress and remaining time. All you need to do is have a rest.
When progress shows "100% completed" and a dialog pops pup. Congradulations! Disk clone completes successfully.

This one made a very simple copy of my old drive that worked. I didn't need to re-install Windows 7 or anything else for that matter. It was as simple as making the clone, swapping out the drives and rebooting.
