Thank you for joining the Intel® NUC community.
The best advice regarding cloning the SSD in your case should be provided by the Acronis support, this since you are using their tools. I searched on the web for more information on this, and the links below might help;
- Acronis True Image: how to clone a disk | Knowledge Base
- How to Clone an existing drive to a new SSD
- Clone HDD to SSD(Solid-State Disk) without Reinstalling Windows - EaseUS
- How to Migrate Your Windows Installation to a Solid-State Drive
- Upgrade to an SSD: The best way to make your computer feel like new - CNET
Hope it helps.

Alas, some cloning software can't handle eMMC devices. It appears that the Acronis package is one of them. The links provided by Amy should lead you to a comparable product that will work...
Thanks Scott and Amy.
EaseUs worked fine with 1 exception. (Should have read more.)
No recovery partition, (I left 2G as unallocated, just in case I could add it later)
No probs, boot from USB, or worst case the eMMC.
I did rename the volume for the new drive to make things obvious. (drive letters change depending on which copy of os loads up)
And changed my user name on the original os to make things blindingly obvious as to which os was being loaded.
1 last question,
Can the eMMC be disabled in the bios?
Just so the drive is left "clean" and not accessible under windows.
Thanks for the tip, re disable the emmc.
