This or ADATA SX8200 Pro? They're about the same in terms of price but I think the adata may be faster?
It's the big daddy, which means it will be supported everywhere, as well as being about as fast as you can go.
Does anyone know if it is possible to easily clone a smaller capacity one of these M.2's to this larger one? Its been quite easy to do from a regular HDD to HDD or SSD via software like Acronis but I looked into it about a year or so ago and the resounding outcome was that you can't really clone M.2 to M.2. 1TB would be a nice jump from the 256GB I've got ATM.
I've used Macrium Reflect on a few occasions for cloning/migrating from and to NVMe M.2 drives (also does HDD and Sata SSDs without issues). Different sizes, brands etc, works a charm for Raid drives aswell =)
Also, if you're going from a smaller drive to a larger one, it won't automatically enlarge the cloned partion on the larger drive, but just go to disk management and fill the drive there.
Sweet - do you have 2x NVME M2 slots on your mainboard or do you have to put the new one in an enclosure to do the transfer. I should do some research because I don't know if there would even be such a thing as a NVME enclosure available… I was an early adopter and only have 1 slot on my board. I guess the other option is that you could clone to another HDD on the system and swap out the old drive for the new one and then try to do a recovery from DOS/ statup media but that's a bit more messy. Would be nice just to swap out the drives and not be without a computer and ozbargain for a while :)
External NVMe to USB exists, but it'd be faster with a PCI-e to NVMe card; I would say.
@BradH13: Yeah, a pci-e card would work best. But as you said, you can also just clone it to a HDD; Macrium reflect allows you to clone all partions off a disk including boot and windows files. So after the clone is finished just power down, swap your m.2 drive for the new one and boot off your HDD. Once youve waited the year or so for windows 10 to boot off a disk drive, you can clone your original m.2 files over to your new m.2 from your hdd. Then just power down again, boot off your new m.2 drive. Then stretch the 'C:' partion to fill the drive and delete the partions not required on your hdd from disk management. And that should be job done, shouldn't notice any difference other than you now have more room on your ssd.
