Hey so, I bought a Sabrent nvme m.2 (cheap but highly praised for its amazing speeds at its price) issue is the drive is 4k sectors but has a converter you can download to convert it to 512e sectors. I sorta understand this but am curious if after i transfer my OS and stuff from my ssd to the nvme if I could/should convert it back to the 4k or if that would even be possible/worth it. Thanks
Well there is a nifty program they supply that converts the current sector size which I suppose it means its emulating since it says 512e, I also have no idea how to do what you said when it comes to creating an image and restoring it to the new drive
You could use a third party app like Acronis or use Windows 10 own backup features.
On Windows 10 , go to Control Panel>System and Security> Backup and Restore (Windows 7).
On the left pane, click the Create a system image link.
Under Where do you want to save the backup? select On a hard disk (make sure to have a USB disk with enough space to host the system image).
When the image is created you will be prompt to create a system repair disc, you will use the disc to restore the image into the new disc.
If you have a Windows 10 bootable USB flash drive then you could skip the repair disc option, since you could use such drive to restore the image.
