1 TB WD Blue SSD SATA III $88 on Prime

Recommended Posts

Amazon deal.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B073SBRHH6/

Procedure for laptop, as opposed  to desktop. Desktop is easier.

1) buy SATA to USB adaptor  cord ($8 or so) and plug new drive into laptop USB port.

2) Run cloning software old internal cloned onto your new drive.*

3) Immediately remove old internal drive and plug the new drive into the laptop.

4) Optional: Buy case ($9 or so) Take just removed old drive and put into that case to use as auxiliary USB drive.  Or put  the old drive in a desktop computer bay in order to have another drive in the desktop system.

* There are freeware cloning software to download and use. Check the online do it yourself tutorials to understand the procedure.

Must be sold out.  Only options for 1 TB is from 55 "other sellers".  Also, that version is vintage 2017.  Understand a 2017 SSD is still good...  But is far from the latest.  Also, caution: clones from some cloning software may not be bootable when swapped if the two SSDs are of different vintage.  I can personally attest to that.  I use Acronis.  Purchased version.

If you buy it and a couple of other products, it shows the SSD is $87.99 but the site is very confusing.
