  1. Upgrading my Samsung EVO NVMe M.2 drive


    I'm looking for advice about upgrading my NVMe drive on my desktop PC.

    My Windows 10 desktop PC uses a 250Gb Samsung EVO NVMe M.2 as the boot (CUpgrading my Samsung EVO NVMe M.2 drive :) drive. I recently bought a Samsung 500Gb EVO Plus NVMe M.2 to upgrade it.

    What's the best way to do this? Or must I replace the old drive with the new drive and rebuild the OS from scratch? Is there any easy way to clone NVMe drives? Does Samsung provide software to do this?

    Thanks.

  2. How to regain all unallocated space on my New Samsung 970 EVO M.2 NVMe drive?

    Hello Everyone,

    I just now installed a new Samsung 970 EVO NVMe M.2 500GB SSD drive to my system, and cloned all the old information from my old 256GB M.2 SSD to this new one. All went good and my system and Bios sees the New Samsung 970 EVO NVMe M.2 500GB
    SSD and it boots to it and runs just Great.

    However.. my new Drive is only using the first 250GB like the old drive was. My new drive has 227.30GB of Unallocated space on it.

    How can I us all of the New drive??... Is there a Free utility or Paid or can this simple be done in Windows 10 that will allow me to move the unused "unallocated" portion so I can Us my whole 500GB drive??... I tried both EaseUS and Macrium
    Free ware with no Luck.

    I'm running the newest drivers and Windows 10 1809 x64. And as you can probably tell I'm new to this and would GREATLY appreciate a step by step on how to do this.

    Thank-You for your Help in Advance.

    Upgrading my Samsung EVO NVMe M.2 drive

    My Samsung 970 EVO 2TB NVMe m.2 ssd not being detected in BIOS

    I am having problems with the Samsung 970 EVO 2TB NVMe m.2 ssd and it not being detected in BIOS. I recently had to submit my motherboard in RMA for repairs and the drive was working perfectly before, but now it's not being detected. I receive this code
    in "Secure Erase" in ASUS BIOS: SMNVMeROM

    I have an ASUS ROG RAMPAGE VI OMEGA x299 motherboard and I have 2 other NVMe m.2 drives that do work on the motherboards m.2 slots, and in the dimm.2 adapter slot. It's just that the 970 EVO had my operating system on it, and I'm confused by what SMNVMeROM
    means. Did it turn into a ROM file? Should I try putting an operating system on one of the working m.2 drives, to see if I can access the m.2 drive in question(windows disk management)? ASUS wasn't able to help me out in terms of tech. support.

    Thanks,

    Steve
