I don't know if it was mentioned bu Rsync is an excellent tool for backing up or cloning a drive. For windows there's cwrsync https://www.itefix.net/cwrsync

This looks like an option. I'm guessing I have to pay the $75 for the ability to clone an entire bootable OS though? Is that right?
I used the Free Edition. I tested it first by imaging it to the new drive and it booted. So I created the RAID 1 array and imaged to that. I made sure the Windows installation had the RAID drivers beforehand.

I kinda want to buy the standard version since they made it so easy for me. I'll probably do it for the incremental backup though I do like the differential for the speed of restoration and storage is cheap.

It's really nice. You can boot a backup image in a virtual machine and pull files from it. Can't recommend it enough.

Anyone tried AOMEI Backupper Standard? It's free I'm using it but didn't get to the point of restoring the image. I got it at Gizmo's Freeware recommendation. Here are some reviews of different free drive cloning software: http://www.techsupportalert.com/best-fr ... ftware.htm
I use the free AOMEI to clone my Windows 10 spinners and SSD from the CD drive.
Very happy with it. Tested it an the cloned drive booted! https://www.aomeitech.com/freeware.html

Also like the free Mini Tool Partition Wizard. Versions 9 and 10 and may have used V11. It starts the clone from with-in Windows and it restarts and clones from the CD rom. Tested it an the cloned drive booted! https://www.partitionwizard.com/free-pa ... nager.html.

Plenty of cloners out there but is any of them known for accurately replicating the source unique identifiers in order to avoid the hassle of re authorising licences?

Lately I have been using AOMEI from a bootable CD but can clone the C drive from within Windows after a reboot.

I also use Mini Tool Partition Manager

Both have free versions which I use.

A good reason to use Macrium is because it is SSD friendly with TRIM and Rapid Delta Restore.

Rapid delta cloning and restore are features included only in commercial Macrium Reflect licenses. (And totally worth the money, imo :D )
