Hi everyone,
I've got a Dell E7470 Latitude with a 250GB drive that I'm upgrading to a 500 GB Samsung 960 Evo.
What's the best way of doing this?

I received this from my supplier:
"

There is currently no USB device capable of supporting NVMebased drives. This is an issue between the USB interface and the NVMe protocol.The tech does not currently exist.

You will need to utilise a two step backup using an external drive or backup software."

Hello lovelyjubbly,

Thanks for posting.

You could create an image of to a normal USB hard drive and then install the M.2 drive.

From the rescue media (PE10) then perform a restore.


Kind regards

Thanks Stephen,
So I don't use the Clone Function, just a regular Full Image?

Yes, that is correct take a full image, swap your drives and restore as you normally would.
