so he has an aging but working dell latitude D620 and he got it into his brain when he saw this video that he needs a crucial SSD. I say wtf for? is a SATAI controller anyway. (yes 1)
so i come to OCC for help. the question is two fold:
-1 - is there a better alternative to said SSD (a cheaper one preferably ofc.) he wants a 128GB to replace the tiny 78GB he has now. (yes he's set on an SSD but if you can provide me with a good HDD alternative that will be relatively fast)
- 2 - how should I go about making the new drive bootable and transfer everything (and I mean everything) from the HDD? I have a portable HDD, should I create a disk image? please walk me thru specifics, and/or apps I should use.
and finally, I am no stranger to PC innards. I built mine, fixed the one I had before a couple of times, and swapped out laptop HDDs before. but those were fresh OS installs.
thank you for your time and kudos to all!
