    Do I Clone or Image my Win10 SSD to NVMe?

    I would like to move my OS from a smaller 240gb SSD (running out of room) to a 512gb NVMe SSD. What is the better option-do I clone or image the OS and all its partitions to the NVMe? Are there any need to know pointers before I attemp it?
    Many thanks in advance,

    If you clone it, it will clone all that is sees and will not fill up the new drive and will leave extra space blank. All you would have to do is extend the volume in admin tools/ Computer management. I think this is better than imaging it.

    Done; up and running. I'll extend the volume tomorrow. Many thanks!
