    M.2 SSD Drive With Windows 10 Listed as Disk 1 in Disk Management,

    Hi, In my pc M.2 SSD with Windows 10 OS is listed as Disk 1 and not as Disk 0 in Disk Management. Also, the same drive is listed as Removable devices which is actually internal SSD.

    Can anybody help me resolve this, please?

    SATA SSD and M.2 SSD

    i was with a ssd sata and now i have ssd m.2, i formatted and put windows 11 in m.2, but i did not remove the ssd sata, i can only boot windows with the ssd sata connected, if i remove it windows does not boot to m.2



    obs: windows was installed on m.2 but the ssd sata was still connected, but windows was 100% installed on m.2, is there any way I can set m.2 as primary? (when i removed the ssd sata it did not recognize windows)

    Sorry for my bad English

    External SATA3 SSD to USB (512GB Crucial MX100 SSD) showing up as a Hard drive in Windows 10 Defragment and optimize drives?

    Hi Anup,

    Thanks again for your response, suggesting a Windows 10 System Restore &/or using the file history to restore files.

    I have been using the Windows 10 file history feature & backing up my files to the external 512GB Crucial MX100

    SATA3 to USB 3.0 SSD ever since installing the full retail version of Windows 10 Home 64-bit USB Flash UEFI onto

    my ASUS G751JY notebooks' 512GB OEM Samsung SM951 PCIe (AHCI) M.2 OS SSD.

    I've never tried using the Windows 10 file history feature to restore files and also have never attempted to use

    the system restore feature. I'll let you know if either method successfully fixes the issue of getting the Windows 10

    Defragment and Optimize drives to correctly list the external 512GB Crucial MX100 SATA3 to USB 3.0 SSD as an SSD

    (and not as a hard disc drive).

    I believe the event occurred after the last Windows 10 update because I recall the drive being listed correctly as an SSD

    after initially clean installing Windows 10.

    Take care Anup,

    Jon Grimes
