I used Apricom's USB drive migration kit.

It has a "data selector" feature that would make this easy. Under 35 bucks on amazon.

Hi,

I would suggest you to try AOMEI Backupper Software in order to Clone Partitions or Volumes on HDD.

With this software you can either clone entire HDD or portions.
