I just ordered an SSD, and I just want to know how to move Windows 8.1 from HDD to new SSD with EaseUS Todo Backup. Does it back up and restore the Windows 8.1 OS and the data on your HDD and SSD?

Yes, this software is capable of moving the entire system partition on another HDD or a newly purchased SSD.

To initiate the procedure, go to CLONE, select the source partition with the operating system, then choose the target (eg. SSD) and tick the option called Optimize for SSD. Wait for the process to complete. When it's finished, reboot the PC, access BIOS and set the SSD as primary boot device and the operating system will boot normally and that's it.
