I would like to upgrade the 256 GB M.2 SSD with a 2 TB one. Are 2 TB cards compatible with my Baker motherboard and is any brand compatible?

I bought a Samsung 2 TB 970 EVO Plus NVMe M.2 SSD and a Plugable USB Gen 2 NVMe SSD Enclosure. I put the new SSD card into the SSD Enclosure. I downloaded Samsung's free Magician and Data Migration Installer for Consumer. I then plugged the SSD Enclosure into a compact USB port (it also has a cable for standard USB) and ran the migration software. It cloned the existing SSD drive to the new 2 TB Drive then shut down the computer. I proceed to swap the new SSD card for the original, buttoned everything back up and restarted the computer.

 

It started right up and so far I have found zero problems. I'm beside myself about how easy the whole process went!

hi

difficult to tell you, you have to see if a user has already tested
Most often we will recommend the same models here
such as Samsung SSD 980
you can also try Crucial Scan, quite reliable

Welcome to Crucial USA
otherwise, as already proposed here
