What's the least painful (and free) way to do this?
Macrium Reflect (Free) is another alternative.
It is not free, as far as making bootable media but, I would suggest Easeus ToDo Home edition. It is only $10 and worth every penny. It is also very easy to use.
Ok I used Clonezilla and it seemed pretty painless. However, Windows still reported my old drive size (new drive is bigger). I did the following:
1. Booted into Gparted. It reported an error with the drive size and offered to fix it and I did.
2. Resized the partition to use the rest of the unallocated space.
3. Booted back into Windows. Still reported old size.
4. Opened MiniTool partition I had installed. It reported the correct size of the partition. Didn't change anything just opened the app.
5. Rebooted Windows. During boot it automatically did a drive scan/fix. After boot, it reported the correct size.
In the future how can I get clonezilla to report the correct partition sizes afterwards?
backerupper has worked perfect for me
you can usually adjust it before the clone.
How is that done?
depends on the software. there usually a way to adjust the partition size right before the clone. this is the backerupper instructions.
As others have suggested ... AOMEI Backupper
It’s all I use now. It’s never failed me.
lol ive been calling it backerupper for years oops.
I think either way is fine.
Does it let you create bootable media? I am not sure you can clone a live drive with it from within Windows.
I was specifically asking about Clonezilla.
Macrium Reflect free version.
I bought one copy of Macrium Reflect (during one of those holiday sales a few years back) and have been moving it from build to build. From the amount of time I saved, it was worth every penny.
