sorry I have asked this question some time ago.

Now ready to go for an hardware upgrade

my laptop is a Intel i7 cpu and has 2 graphic cards. 16GB internal memory. it's about 4 years old . First drive is a solid state 128 gig this as Windows 10 64bit. Second drive is a 1TB normal mechanical drive running at low speed. my library has about 12,000 plus, resources. I have logos 8 installed on the 1tb . Question Would it make a big difference to upgrade to a Samsung 860 Evo 1TB . Interface: SATA 6GB/s Interface, compatible with SATA 3 GB/s & 1.5 interfaces SATA 6Gb/s Interface2.5 inch form factorSequential Read: Max. 550 MB/sSequential Write: Max. 520 MB/5 Year Warranty

There are so many different drives is this the best one to go for

What is the best way to copy the Old drive data to a new ssd drive Appreciate any pointers

It would make a difference, yes, but the speeds you get on the new SSD could depend on the motherboard you have in your 4 year old laptop. It might have a slower SATA speed rate than the drive.

Upgrading SSD from 128 GB to 1 TB followed by moving Logos 8 to SSD would noticeably improve Logos 8 performance.

Personally look for SSD Sata III Write speed 500 MB/s or faster. If laptop has a faster SSD interface (m.2, NVMe, PCIe), then would use it for noticeably faster performance (since Write speed can be over 1,000 MB/s).

Amazon's Best Seller is $ 129.99 Samsung 860 EVO 1 TB (Sata III) => https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Inch-Internal-MZ-76E1T0B-AM/dp/B078DPCY3T

Amazon's Choice is $ 89.99 Pioneer 3D Nand 1 TB (Sata III) => https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07KWWFGRX (500 MB/s write)

Personally have used clonezilla many times to clone one Windows drive to another, which included drive identifier.

The ssd drive that came with the laptop is S-Sata ll, 

The laptop was a gaming custom made by PC specialist

The Intel i7 cpu is a 4th gen 

I have tried using the gaming graphics card selected when using logos 

I Found it was not making eny difference between the internal card

Thanks

The Samsung 860 EVO is my go to drive.  I use them in every build and upgrade.  Samsung's data migration software makes it easy to clone your old drive.

Hi

I have installed a Samsung 860 EVO 1TB Smile and a 2nd 1tb HDD (D) drive. 

My ( C) drive was a 120 ssd. 

I used a Orico 2.5/3.5" Dual 2-Bay USB 3.0 Sata HDD /SSD Hard Drive 

Docking Station Clone which works with out connecting to a pc/laptop. 

Now I have a clone copy of the ( C) 120 ssd use for Windows 10 64bit.  And a (K) ssd drive which is the rest of the 1tb. Question I made a copied the logos data files.  I then uninsulated logos.  Reinstall logos to the (k) ssd drive  Then copied the logos data backup over to the (k) ssd drive  When I started logos all the books are saying they are in the cloud  Do I need to do a full index,  what's the command I usd Thanks

Logos wiki has =>  Quick Installation onto multiple computers (would suggest method 3 due to drive letter change - scan command copies resources files into new installation followed by indexing)

Option for downloading resources is opening Library. Facet Devices has "Not on This Device" so can select resource(s) to download from the cloud.

Thank you for all the help.
