Published on May 7th, 2013
Corsair has released a software utility or cloning kit for hard drive to SSD data migration, the Corsair SSD and Hard Drive Cloning Kit. Getting a solid state drive or a larger storage drive is easy. But transferring your current data, software, and operating system to your new drive or SSD is quite difficult and hassle without the proper tools or utility. Corsair’s Cloning Kit is designed to help users migrate their existing system from an old hard drive to a faster Corsair SSDs. Check more details below and where to buy.
Corsair SSD and Hard Drive Clonking Kit
Data migration or hard drive cloning is one solution that many of us are unaware of. Usually when we buy a new hard drive, we reinstall the operating system to the new drive and copy all the files from the old drive to the new one. Not knowing there is a much easier way to do this if you intend to clone or just migrate all your files and system from one drive to a new and faster/larger one.
The Corsair SSD and Hard Drive Clonking Kit helps users to migrate or move their data from their old hard drive to a new Corsair SSD simply by selecting the source drive and selecting the destination drive. After that, the user just needs to click the button to begin the migration process.
The Corsair SSD and Hard Drive Cloning kit includes the data migration software, USB-to-SATA cables, and is compatible with Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8 and OS X. The USB cable included in the kit supports both USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 connectivity, and can deliver up to 180MB/s via USB 3.0 ports.
But this SSD and Hard Drive Cloning Kit is not free, rather it is affordable. It has an SRP of $24.99, but more or less you can get the same for a cheaper price on online stores.
