I have a Dell Inspiron 15 5000 laptop which came with a 128gb ssd and a 1tb hdd. I want to buy a compatible 500 gb ssd to replace the smaller one (its in an m2 slot).
There are no other open slots.
How do i fully clone from the 128 to the 500 if the cant be mounted at the same time?
You could use a program like Macrium Reflect Free to create a recovery USB, and image the SSD to the internal HDD.
Then power off and swap SSD's, boot the recovery USB, and restore the image to the new SSD.
