I am upgrading from a Western Digital M.2 SATA SSD to a Samsung 970 Evo Plus NVMe SSD.
I have discovered that I cannot clone my system image due to the differing sector sizes between the drives. Samsung says their Data Migration software can do it, but it has not worked for me on two separate...
Hello, so all of a sudden my computer stopped recognizing my M.2 drive. Windows runs on a Samsung SSD and in the past week I've noticed that it takes a while to load and it stays for around 30 seconds on the bios logo and today the M.2 drive where I keep my files just disappeared.
I checked disk...
I decide to buy a nvme ssd for gaming, In my country both 980 1TB and 970 evo plus 1TB are same price so which one should I choose?

I recently built my pc and placed the nvme ssd into the m.2 cpu slot right above the gpu slot. I also upgraded to the latest bios version which is F6d and have also tried the previous versions, however, when I try to install windows the ssd doesn't pop up. Anyone have any clue how to fix this?
Having an issue on my Windows 11 Pro PC with Samsung Data Migration. I am trying to clone my 970 Evo Plus (500GB, C drive) to my new 980 Pro (1TB). The tool will run and hit 99% only to fail with the error stating an unknown operation caused it to fail. This is not my first time with the...

I have Asus FX503VD Laptop and I have 2,5" HDD. Now, I want to buy an SSD next to HDD. First of all, I picked Samsung 860 EVO 500GB M.2 SATA3 MZ-N6E500BW, but after I saw Samsung 970 EVO PLUS 500GB MZ-V7S500BW and I changed my mind. But I looked in to compatibility and I have some...

So I got a new Samsung 970 EVO Plus 500gb for my brother's pc this Christmas. Turned out the motherboard only supported a SATA m2 and not an NVMe in the m2 slot, so I bought an Asus Hyper m2 x 16 v2 PCIe adapter. It is still not showing up, nor in the...
I just bought an M.2. Never had one before, and I noticed they don’t come with a screw. My motherboard is an Asus Prime Z270-A it looks like my board comes with standoffs preinstalled, and I don’t know where the box for my board is or what kind of screw I need to get. If someone could check if...
I'm looking at Samsung's offerings for m.2 SSDs, and they seem to have three tiers for their 970 series. What is the performance/durability difference between the 970 Evo, 970 Evo Plus, and the 970 Pro? Is the price difference between these models justifiable? Thanks!
I have a Macbook Pro 2019 and want to have an external storage for it. I will be using it for storage and copying files back and forth from it to the macbook. Is the Samsung T5 1TB enough for my use case or should I buy a Thunderbolt 3 M.2 SSD enclosure and pair it with a 970 EVO PLUS 1TB?
I plan to buy a Samsung 970 Plus 1 TB as storage drive and maybe an additional Samsung 970 Plus 240GB or 500GB for boot drive. I know SSDs do not function like HDDs. Nevertheless, I am wondering if there is any advantage to use multiple M.2 SSD (boot and storage drive separated)...
So I recently bought a Samsung 970 Evo plus 1Tb and installed it into my setup (B450 with 2600X) and it ran pretty bad (1300Mb/s read, 1150 write)
I then decided to make the leap to X570 considering I was already a bit behind. The drive now runs at 1800Mb/s read and 1770 write although this is...
Hello, I bought a 970 evo 1tb from a friend who no longer needed it. I plan to add it to my computer but before I do I’m concerned with all the data that is still on it that he never deleted. Is there a way to delete it once I plug it in? Is it safe to even plug it in with his data and all still...
Hi, I would like to make sure every single part of the Pc I am going to build is compatible so I would like you to tell me if there is any chance the gpu isn't compatible with my cpu, ram or motherboard.
(I already own the gpu so can't choose another one)
(Also I have already ordered the parts...

I am having a trouble booting this drive. I have spent about 4 full days doing it on my own with all the help of known internet wisdom but I end up all the time failing.
How far I can go:
Basically I install my NVMe disc, plug the windows 10 boot stick in(GPT), BIOS set to UEFI.
I have the Samsung 970 EVO Plus (500gb) that I installed with my brand new computer that I built and noticed after benchmarking that it's running at half its advertised speeds.
I am on the latest firmware for the drive as well as have the Samsung nvme...
So I will soon build a new PC and wanted to use two Samsung 970 EVO Plus 1TB. My choice for the Motherboard would be the ROG Strix Z390-F Gaming, and it says it has 2 x M.2 Socket 3:
1 x Type 2242-2280, supports SATA & PCIe 3.0 x4 modes
1 x Type 2242-22110, supports PCIe 3.0 x4 mode

I recently built a new pc. However, I'm having several issues, and I haven't installed OS or gotten into BIOS.
First issue: My monitor is alienware ultrawide AW3418DW. I tried connecting it through the DP2 port of both the mobo, and the gpu. The computer boots up, then restarts...

Hey, so I have this rig I built with an Asus H370-A Prime and I added a 500GB M.2 NVMe 970 EVO. It's been working fine for more than six months.
However, today I got a crazy BSOD: UNEXPECTED_STORE_EXCEPTION
It didn't go over 0% for a long time so I had to hard reset the computer. After that, the...
Hi, I was wondering which one is worthier to buy for my future pc build. I am interested on gaming but since I want to have an nvme ssd, I had chosen in the beginning the 970 Pro. But now I saw that the Evo plus costs about 40€ less and it's newer. So, is the Pro considered more professional and...
As building my first pc I don't know which SSD is compatible with my motherboard the 970 Evo plus or the WD Blue SSD as they both have different pin arrangements cause I'm having trouble finding any info on this
I recently purchased a 500gb Samsung 970 Evo Plus for my build and spent 3 hours installing it with no avail. At first i thought i might not be putting it in all the way, but i tried several times and it seems like thats not the case. It seems to be in all it can go. When i go into...

I’m upgrading my SSD and I’m currently comparing the Samsung 970 Evo Plus and 970 Pro. I will mostly use it for gaming and small file transfers. Is the Pro worth the price hike? How much better is the Pro than the Evo Plus? Thanks!
