I want to make a backup to a new HDD like if I add replace new HDD with the old one, I see no difference or nothing to setup, no partition to make,
I want a backup, that will be in same state as my current HDD,
The only new thing I wanna feel is speed (coz new HDDs have good speed), rest I don't wanna make any other installations or setting up, I want to resume with a new HDD with same state as current one,

how should I do such a backup??????
 
Solution
Clone from the old drive to the new one.

Buy a new drive of the proper size. Now might be a good time to consider a SSD.
Obtain a USB dock.
Install Macrium Reflect.
Put the new drive in the dock, run Macrium, clone the entirety of the old drive to the new drive
Power off
Take the old drive out, and put the new one in
Power up
It should work.
