I’m going to buy a new m.2 ssd with more space but I don’t know if there is a way to transfer all of what I have on my current ssd to the new one. I’m going to put the new m.2 where my current m.2 is so I won’t be using them both at the same time. Please help!

If you have an old harddrive or something then that'd work. Transfer contents to hard drive then over to the new SSD. Depending on how much you have downloaded then you could get a USB with, say, 128GB storage. Assuming you have a 128GB SSD right now,

Assuming you have another drive with sufficient free space to hold the entirety of your current m.2 drive:

1. Download and install Macrium Reflect
2. Run that, and create a Rescue CD or USB (you'll use this later). "Other Tasks"
3. In the Macrium client, create an Image to some other drive. External USB HDD, maybe. Select all partitions. This results in a file of xxxx.mrimage
4. When done, power OFF.
5. Swap the 2 drives
6. Boot up from the Rescue USB you created earlier.
7. Recover, and tell it where the Image is that you created in step 3, and which drive to apply it to...the new m.2
8. Go, and wait until it finishes.
9. That's all...this should work.
