Solved Upgrading Laptop RAM Advice.


I was wondering about changing the HDD for an SSD. I use the paid Macrium Reflect backup. How can I copy the HDD backup from the Ext Drive to the new SSD and are there any issues in doing this? Thanks.

Might move the question about the HDD and SSD in Backup and Recovery.

The storage upgrade will be huge boost of program loading, OS start-up time, game loading etc. On your laptop manual it says that the laptop supports PCIe Gen 3x4 Nvme drive. If you can upgrade to a Nvme drive not ordinary SATA SSD it will be great.

Good, it is recent enough to run win11 officially.
