What is the difference between System Clone/Migration and Disk Clone?
Here is my situation: I have an important Dell Optiplex 755 PC running Win XP Pro SP3 32-bit, and its hard drive is beginning to fail. I want to copy everything to a new and larger hard drive in the best way. I also have Aomei Backupper Professional 2.5 on this machine, and I can make a Bootable Media version of it.
So, what Aomei function should I choose? System Clone or Disk Clone?
What are the pros and cons?
The old hard drive is a Western Digital Velociraptor WD1600HLFS-75G6U0 (156GB, SATA-II 3.0Gb/s).
The new hard drive will be EITHER (a) a very similar Western Digital Velociraptor that is larger than the existing hard drive OR (b) a Seagate Momentus XT hybrid HD-SSD that we bought in 2011 and never used.
Maybe your answer depends on which one I choose as the new hard drive ?
Please provide lots of detail !! And any tips on doing this correctly.
