Re: SATA SSDs
I'm trying to get my work laptop upgraded, the only solution they had was to try to copy the NVMe drive to an external USB disc, replace it with a bigger one, and copy back, but Clonezilla kept failing. They've now given me a 2nd SSD to fit in the SATA bay. It's a 1/4 of the speed of the M.2 drive, but the only other suggestion was to re-image the laptop.
I've given them links to NVMe duplicators, which are pricey. A cheaper alternative is NVMe to SATA drive caddies, allowing them to be placed in to a standard 2.5" SATA duplicator.
