Free alternative to EaseUS todo PCTrans

I need to move some installed programs from my boot disk to a secondary disk. I know this is possible and I know EaseUS todo PCTrans can do it. However despite all the advertising that EaseUS todo PCTrans is "free", it most certainly is not free. When I try to do what I need to do, EaseUS todo PCTrans tells me I have reached the limit of the so-called "free" usage and I need to buy a license.

So, this brings me to my question... Does anyone know of a properly free alternative to EaseUS todo PCTrans?

Hi,
I am not aware of a free alternative.
I was reluctant to reply as this may discourage somebody else from doing so.

I will try to find an alternative for you - but many are like EaseUs, they say it is "free" when it actually isn't.

I have had a quick look -
There seem to be a couple of options here - click here

I cannot vouch for any of the listed software as I have not tried it. :(

@KenB I appreciate your time in replying, thank you.

I think you're right, some so-called "free" are literally up to the point of installation, but beyond that need a license. I need to move 25GB, so I guess anything "free" would not work to that extent.

What I need to decide is, if £50 is worth it for a license, and since this is a lot cheaper than a larger HDD (SSD), then I think I will inevtaibly end up paying it.

I tend to agree with you re: moving 25GB with a free software.
If you are moving large amounts of data / software then you are probably best biting the bullet and going for the software that you know and trust.
