This is the process for cloning a drive using the Acronis True Image software included in our Kingston SSD Bundle Kits. Before we begin, we want to ensure our SSD is properly connected to your system.
You did not get the Bundle Kit that included Acronis? Need to clone on a Mac? Check out the videos in this playlist:
For Desktop users, you can install your Kingston SSD in your system before the cloning process. For help with installation, please refer to your system’s user manual, or view on of our Step-By-Step SSD desktop installation videos below:

For notebook users, install your New Kingston SSD into the USB enclosure that came with your bundle kit. Connect the enclosure to your notebook before starting the cloning process. If you did get the bundle kit you’ll need to obtain a USB SATA enclosure and install you SSD inside it before proceeding.
The first thing we’ll need to do is download the Acronis software. To do that visit and click the “Download Acronis” link to start the download. Once this is finished, locate the Acronis True Image Application and double-click the file to begin the installation. Click on the Install button to proceed. Once the installation is complete, click on “Start Application”. After accepting the License agreement, you’ll be asked to sign into your Acronis Account. If you do not have an account, click on the “Create Account” link to get started. You’ll need to provide your name, Email address, and a password. Once you’ve entered this information, click on the “Create Account” Button. You’ll be sent an email to confirm your account was created. Here you’ll be asked to enter in the Activation key that was included in your bundle kit. Now that the Acronis setup is complete you can proceed to the Cloning process.
Under Tools, select “Clone Disk” and the Clone Disk wizard will appear to guide you through the process. Select “Automatic” and click “Next” to continue. Here you will choose the source disk, or the disk your Operating system is on. It’s very important to make sure you’re selecting the correct source disk. Using the wrong source disk could result in permanent data loss, and you definitely don’t want that. Once you’ve checked and double-checked that you have the proper drive selected as your source disk, click “Next” to continue. Here you’re going to want to choose your new Kingston SSD as the destination disk. Once you have it selected, click “Next” to continue. A summary screen will now appear displaying the new partition structure of the SSD drive. The original partition size will be automatically scaled based on the new SSD size. For example, if the new drive is smaller in size than the original hard drive, the partitions will shrink accordingly. If the new drive is larger than the original hard drive, then the partitions will be enlarged proportionally. Select Proceed to continue. At this point you’re going to need to restart your computer so the Cloning process can continue.
Using your SSD
Now that the cloning process is complete, you are now ready to use your new solid state drive. For Desktop users, your system will be configured with two bootable devices. You must enter your system’s BIOS and set the Boot priority so that the SSD will be the first device the system will boot from. For notebook users, you are now ready to remove the drive from the USB enclosure and install the new SSD into your notebook. For installation guidance, please refer to your Notebook’s user manual or view one of our step-by-step SSD Hardware notebook installation videos:
