cloning windows server 2012

I have WS 2012 R2 running like I want it, happily serving my audio files to my audio player. Remote Desktop is setup and I can connect to the server from my laptop. I can run several tagging utilities that I am used to directly on the server to retag audio files, which are mostly FLAC.

The only stupidity I made was installing it in a separate partition on a 1 TB harddisk.

 

I now want to clone the Windows Server partition to a 128 GB SSD and use that as startup disk. And free up the 1 TB disk for a storage pool.

Is this possible? What tool is best suited for cloning the Windows server partition?

EaseUS Partition Master has a disk clone wizard and also has an option to migrate the OS to SSD. 

 

I have not tried that specifically, but I have found it to be reliable in the past for general partition admin. 

 

It is free for home use. http://www.partition-tool.com/easeus-partition-manager/disk-copy.htm

Sorry should have checked first. The migration is only in the Pro version.
