Swapping the data from two hard drives.

So I am looking to swap the data of my 500gb HDD out of my ps4 and my 750gb HDD out of my laptop. I dont use the laptop much and really need the extra 250gb on ps4 but dont want to lose anything from either.

So my question is the only way to simply make clones by using my "real" pc with ample hard drive space? Whats the best method to do this? Is there a better way?

Best I can tell the 750gb will work in the ps4 so compatibility should not be a problem but I really really really really don't want to lose either sets of data.

    You can use a program like Acronis to backup the partions of each drive. I am not sure what the file system on the PS4 is like, but Acronis will at least allow you to take the partitions from your windows HDD, and move them to the 500gb HDD (It has an option to resize the partition to the new HDD size) It does have a cost though. I am not sure if there is a free program that you can use to do this (easily).
