    NVME cloning question.

    I have an NVME on my PC music server, that is really running HOT. We're talking something is wrong with it. It is an NVME like I said but I have never cloned an NVME to another NVME before. How can it be done? I will have to look to see if there is another NVME slot to put the new NVME if that is what I decide to get. I don't know if I really need an NVME, but I do need at least an SSD. Have you ever clone one before?

    What is a good cloning software?

    Thanks.

    They clone just like normal SSD or HDD, they can be cloned from and too SSD or HDD as well.

    All cloning software work, nothing comes to mind atm.

    I'm torn between aoemi backupper or macrium reflect for the cloning of my NVME drives. The thing is that my main computer will also need to be redone here shortly. I have to make my SSD larger as it is running out of room and getting old. It is almost 10 or 11 years old. I get a little scared just because of the age thing. The start up has been a little iffy the last couple of weeks.
    Well, I will need a software that will convert it from MBR to GPT at the same time, and go from 256GB to 1TB. I think in order to get the convert from MBR to GPT a person needs the pay version of these.
    I haven't used them enough to know what is best. Every article I read has a different one as the best. I guess I'll see who gives me the best deal.

    I always use the acronis boot disk to clone. It is normally free on their website if you start a trial and does the job with partition tools.

    MBR to GPT should not be an issue, and NVME should all be GPT. Going GPT to MBR can be an issue and is normally restricted to pro versions of stuff.

    Macrium Reflect. Or the SSD mfg usually has a tool/utility/program to do the cloning as well (it's usually Acronis but just for that mfg).


    Also, MBR to GPT with Windows 10...
