Re: how to keep the recovery operating system when change hdd

Hi akauts , 


Welcome to the Community Forums. 


Purchased harddrive usually have software bundles that would allow cloning the old harddrive (including the hidden partition OS reimaging ) to the new HDD . Challenge is if the harddrive have different size or type (HDD to SDD) that you may want to check other cloners (jsut for example : acronis , macrium reflect etc. ) to use.
