    The easiest method is to capture the Windows image from source Windows installation, create an ISO based on that image, and clean install it to target disk. Capturing an existing Windows image and clean installing using it transfers absolutely everything, from user profiles and installed apps to desktop settings and user files for each existing user.

    This method does not care about the size of source and target disks or their partitioning system. It always works, regardless of the differences on the source and target disks.

    See Part Four in following tutorial for instructions on capturing the Windows Image, and Part Five to create an ISO based on that image: Create Windows 10 ISO image from Existing Installation Windows 10 Installation Upgrade Tutorials

    No disrespect, but I seriously doubt this is OP's situation. Even if it was, it would be easier to clone it and then run mbr2gpt.

    Your title says "back up", but in your post you say "put into my HDD". We need a better idea of what you ultimately are trying to accomplish.

    Recovering from the total failure of your SSD, which contains Windows as well as all of your personal data?

    Or something else, such as an ordinary copy of all files from the SSD to the HDD and you don't care if the HDD will then boot your PC?
    Sorry for the no details.

    Windows 10 is on my SSD.

    I just want every single file inside my SSD be on my HDD just in case if my SSD corrupts or if my window corrupts I can recover my whole window through my HDD.

    yeah i know HDDs **** up more easier than a SSD

    but lets say i get a virus or something really bad happens to my OS and i need to go back in time so i wouldnt have installed that "virus" etc...

    What you want is to create a system image backup then.

    windows 10 x64 (SO 15063.540)

    no matter if the boot of your system has failures or for those reasons you want to copy to another storage medium, the surprise is that with macrium free it makes it easy to move files all over a mirror. very well explained by colleagues. so we already know. however if there are more disks to clone for more than 2 pcs use macrium free and clone the system.

    Windows 10 itself can do that - Create System Image in Windows 10 Windows 10 Backup Restore Tutorials

    That said, if you have Macrium, I'd use that with the tutorial cereberus posted.

    Good luck.

    I always find cars make a poor analogy as many of the so called prestige marques are often the most troublesome and least reliable. But that's another story we know what you meant.

    If a person can afford a BMW, repair bills should not be an issue...
