Hi,

First of all I am sorry if this was asked and answered before.
Here is Home PC Spec :
i7 8700k
MSI Z370 Gaming M5
RTX 2070 Zotac Mini
RM 850X Corsair
Samsung SSD 840 Evo 120GB (OS)
Samsung SSD 860 Evo 256GB (Games)
WD HDD 1TB around 6-7 Years Old Forgot the type.
Adata SX8200 Pro NVME SSD 1TB (Newly Installed)

With this spec my booting taking like 20-25sec slower than my office PC which is using i5 6400 and apacer ssd 120gb and hdd taking only 12-15 sec.
Is it because of my OLD HDD? or else?
Also I am planning to move the OS and Games into my NVME SSD. I am watching some tutorial from youtube and also reading comment from this forum and some of them said failing when doing cloning. What is the best software to use to clone with my condition?
Thankyou :)

PS : I want to get rid of 840 Evo and Old HDD after successfully moving everything into new NVME and also might buying another NVME to replace the 860 Evo since my Mobo have 2 Slot NVME and because last time when I put NVME to 2nd slot my HDD dissapear (cant be read from the system) so I might better get rid all of them and using 2 NVME slot or if you guys have better opinion please explained to me. Cheers.

I read a lot of posts which are describing bad experiences with drive cloning, so I recommend you to just copy-paste all the files you can.

Your drive dissappeared just because M.2 uses 2 SATA ports on the motherboard.

Try using only the new M.2 you bought and then test the speed.
