Do a clean isntall properly, don't be lazy.


My sound system costs more than my PC.        Check out my S340 build log "White Heaven"        The "LIGHTCANON" flashlight build log        Project AntiRoll (prototype)        Custom speaker project

Programs need to be reinstalled.

Emm, because PCs have only one M.2 NVMe and one M.2 SATA?

 

When upgrading from 960 Evo 250GB to 970 Pro 1TB, I had to boot from HDD, use Veeam Agent to backup 960 Evo, then replace the drives, boot from HDD again and use Veeam Agent to deploy the backup.

Well, if it's not a laptop, but regular desktop, do not move anything and just connect second ssd. You'll have more space. Move files like music, movies or even user profile to new drive and continue using your system.
