    WF7A persuaded me.... I got a Sammy Evo 500 Gb, 1 Tbyte far too OTT for me since I use another drive for storage, only used 31Gb on a 250Gb 'spinner'. Should be here tomorrow.

    NVME M.2? If so, do a benchmark before & after. You will be amazed.

    Good deal, Dave. Now where's my kickback from Amazon...

    I'll be ordering another* Samsung 1TB EVO later this week to replace The Wifoid's "spinner" drive--she's hard on hard drives because throughout the day she writes and deletes many videos/large files on her machine, so it's only a matter of time before it fails.

    I hope you ordered the "regular" EVO and not the Pro model--you get a little more performance out of the Pro, but for everyday use the extra cost isn't worth it.

    *I've been using a 1TB Samsung EVO in my MacMini the last few years and it's been a stellar performer; we use that make/model exclusively at work where they've performed flawlessly there as well.

    Take a look at Clonezilla. It is a free drive imaging tool. It's based on Linux and will "backup/image" a Windows drive just fine along with all versions of Linux. It will backup all your partitions & data. It doesn't include empty space in the image. When you "restore" your drive image, it will put back all your partitions and the data. It will even restore to a different size or type of drive. I have used it quite a bit and it's one of the tools I keep on a thumb drive, ready to use.

    I am not sure how this matters, but yes--at least in part.

    It isn't like HDDs are not made in China.

    Even over SATA, you will be impressed with the speed of nearly everything you do.

    Because the price may go up with the 10% recent increase.

    Only matters a little bit.
