Generally speaking most people will use the same maker of a drive, and then use the manufacturers software. For example samsung has one but it will only pull data from a samsung drive, so both the new and old drive need to be samsung.

With some research I did find This tool. This may be what your looking for. Keep in mind though that many problems can arise from this as hard drive manufacturers sometimes use different methods when designing hard drive.

It appears that western digital has This software, so your best bet is to pick up another western digital and attempt to use this. This appears to be instructions on how to do it.

Good luck!

Acronis will do it as well pretty smoothly. Only thing it gets persnickety about is if the destination drive is smaller than the source drive. If you need an ISO for the tool send me a PM and I can send you a link to download it. The only way to make the tool is if you own the Acronis software.
