Just purchased a new Crucial BX500 SSD (480gb) just to store games. Just wondering the easiest way to move games from my 250gb PCIe SSD (OS) to my new SSD. 

Thank u

@ronnieron  Have you installed the 2.5 inch SSD yet, or still waiting? IF not, you should open the laptop and see if the cable and brackets are installed. If they are not, you will need to order them also.

Hard drive cable connector 929450-001

Hard drive brackets 29561-001

Moving games are not going to be the same depending on the game and how it was installed.

You would need to search the web on how to move what ever games you have. Steam installed games have their way, as does Origin, etc etc. Each has their own way.

Otherwise, simply moving a file or folder would result in the game not being able to start.
