Samsung Data Migrate Software is more like a file-migrate, or file-cloner, it only deals with data on the source disk, it will scan the drive first and ask you to filter files to migrate, that’s why it takes longer time than other backup software, what’s more, it doesn’t migrate the Operating system, if you’re about to switch to a larger SSD, you’ll have to reinstall the OS

Macrorit Partition Expert Migrate OS wizard and Macrorit Disk Clone Wizard will clone the entire disk and make the target disk also bootable, our Migration program deals with both the operation system and the data, it’s the disk-level backup, thus it’s faster than file-level backup. And there’s also another function call Copy Volume available for users who just want to copy personal stuff from one drive to another
