Nope. No objection to IOBit. As for me, I'm just using the simple copy and paste to my external hdd.

 

Good luck!

Re: A DIY Project: Creating a Disaster Recovery System Image

one last question and it may be a no brainer for you.

Right now I just use it to re-encode my dvd's for my personal HTPC type library, diablo II (it uses onboard gpu), music, light programming and so forth.

I at some point in the future want to do titan fall, and maybe others but not imediately.

would I be better off just to change the ram to larger and faster or is doing the ssd the better way.

I ask this because, yes I would like faster hdd, but in reality it doesn't seem slow as it is (but I have nothing to compare it too either)

I don't play games anymore. The last game I've played is Steam's STALKER:Call of Pripyat. So I really do not have any idea what effect the size of the ram has. But I think you have 6 gb left for the system and other programs. That is subtracting 2 gb for the Intel video. Maybe wait until you get the message that you run out of ram while playing.

 

If you have the ssd it will make the loading of programs really very fast which might be needed by some games.

fair enough.

in case i haven't said i really do thank you for your help.

Now one more question.

As you have read I am trying to do the m2 ngff 24gb into 128gb os boot drive and keep the 1tb

will it be better or should i chuck that route and just go with a 256 ssd and chuck the 1tb hdd and remove the 24gb m2 ssd? I heard using it as cache ssd to ssd is no help

The 24 gb ssd  i agree will have no effect on the primary ssd nor to the whole system. The 225 gb is more than enough to house the OS plus programs and data. Windows by default will store personal files in C. Of course this can be modified so that your personal files can be stored in another location. I only have experience the ordinary ssd + hdd in a system not the msata ssd + hdd so I can't make a goode decision about it. However you can visit the website  http://www.thessdreview.com/ to learn about it.

The procedure was revised to make the instructions clearer.
