New OEM SSD - what is best backup/upgrade? (SD7SN3Q256G1002 - Zenbook UX305FA)

Bought Asus Zenbook UX305FA-USM1 with this SanDisk model M.2 SSD 256Go (search here the text "peripheral storage"; or "and M.2 SSD module" for SSD in the photo).  This is my first experience with SSD and I'm more than a little impressed!

But I worry about SSD and might like to have an image clone SSD ready at any time to replace the factory unit.  But a call to technical support phone SanDisk could not immediately recommend a replacement but rather suggested to contact Asus first for their recommendation.  So I come here first for suggestions.  A capacity of about 256 GB is sufficient for me, especially since the largest units seem to be out of my price range.

I'm still learning about new connections since the old days of IDE... but I think this isn't "M2", SATA III (?).  By the look of it, it's a 80mm in length.

I'll probably have follow-up questions, so I'll leave my question to that for now...  Any suggestions? ... anyone with experience?

SanDisk does not sell a SSD m2 to the retail, so he would not have a SanDisk SSD you can buy separately for your computer. Now that said if your computer has a 2.5 SATA port "or a port MSATA form factor of SanDisk options there but m2 is not sold at retail.

  • What is best modem cable to twin with new extreme apple 802.11 ac

    I have an old motorola sb6121 paired with new apple 802.11ac extreme I bought yesterday and after 12 hours of trying everything I keep getting disconnected every few seconds... I have read all the message concerned and tried them all to play nice... When I have more signals 85 Mbps because I pay for the explosion of comcast.  I want a new modem and would like to know what is recommended... I see zoom 5141j is recommended, but I see zoom a modem cable new 16 x 4... It would be to my advantage to go with vx 16 x 4 8 x 4 channels at the time of the twinning with extreme? Thank you

    What is best modem cable pair with the new 802.11ac Apple extreme

    Questions like this are indeed impossible to answer... especially because that person has tested every modem with an AirPort Extreme to see if there is really a modem 'best '.  Even if it were possible to come with a modem 'best' but... it would be judicious bit to choose this modem and then knowledge that was not supported by Comcast.

    Therefore, a better plan for you may be to search a list of modems supported by Comcast, narrow your choices down to 3-4 products, then post this list here and ask other users of Comcast comments on how the products have performed for them.  You can also consider posting on a forum online from Comcast as well.

    Regarding your question about the new Zoom modem, this product is really new, so it will be some time before a work experience can be developed for this product. It seems that the new Zoom modem is designed primarily for working with connections to high speed... 600, 700, 800 + Mbps Internet speeds. So, unless you plan to upgrade to a plan of Internet connection with these types of speeds in the near future, you probably don't need a modem with this type of functionality.

  • New motherboard new OEM Win 7 but how do you reload old applications/data backup image.

    Hello

    I had my motherboard die so have succeeded him and tried to reload a disc image saved, but this failed. When I looked inside, I found that I cannot use my copy of Win 7 (OEM) as a new motherboard is considered a new PC. Boring, but I understand so I got a new OEM copy and loaded it very well and now the PC works fine.

    Now, I want to be able to restore my old applications and data, but the backup I includes the old OEM Win 7 if I restore it I have the same problem again.

    Any ideas?

    Michael

    If she cannot reload, you'll just reinstall your applications manually and restore your files. If you have used the Image of the system to save the old installation, you can mount the image as a .vhd and retrieve your personal files.

    Also noted that it is the motherboard that is dead. What hard drive? It should always be bootable although you change the motherboard.

  • What is the fastest connection that I can use for a new external SSD for my MBP late 2008?

    That IS the question. I want a new external SSD for my MBP late 2008.

    What is the fastest connection type that works?

    'External' and 'SSD' could be a problem.  SSDS are different animals of disks spinny.  Some will say that you need not trim on SSD (TRIM is a management tool to move only the ' opportunity' bytes in a block when the block of data is moved), but definitely TRIM does not work on USB or Firewire.  Not sure if the TRIM works on Thunderbolt connected readers as it does on disks SATA-path, however.

    Speed included between slower and faster, however: USB 2.0, Firewire 400, Firewire 800, USB 3.0, love at first sight.

    Two points:

    1. it is unlikely that your current installation would work if
    you have changed motherboards. You need to reinstall itself.

    2 but you cannot use your current copy of Windows if you change
    motherboards, not even if reinstall you it cleanly. The largest
    disadvantage of an OEM version, is that its license it binds permanently
    the first computer, it is installed on and Microsoft believes that
    If you change the motherboards, another computer. It can never
    legally be moved to another computer, sold or transferred (except with)
    the original computer). If the computer dies or is stolen, your
    license dies with him.

  • I am looking to buy a new PC soon, what I have to buy a new copy of vista, or can I use my code on my new PC?

    Licensing

    I have a copy of windows vista that I installed on my laptop, I am looking to buy a new PC soon, what I have to buy a new copy of vista, or can I use my code on my new PC? I do not plan to use my laptop again once I get this PC is it possible to transfer the license via?

    No problem.

    First of all, backup all your data of the laptop if you have not already.

    When you have done this, the best way to do this is to delete the partition with Vista on it. See the website below for more information:

    http://vistasupport.MVPs.org/delete_a_partition_using_the_vista_dvd.htm

    Once you have finished deleting your partition, the laptop will have nothing about it, so you can choose to reinstall an earlier version of Windows or simply put away to deal with later. You can now legally install the copy of Windows Vista on your new machine.

  • The new Cluster of 5.5 ESXi backup solution.

    All,

    We have built a new Cluster on ESXi 5.5 with 2 servers DL380 G8 (hosts) and a HP Storevirtual 4330 connected via iSCSI to SAN storage. ISCSI all have 4 cards attached to an iSCSI network 1 GB Switch.

    The HP Storevirtual 4330 has 7 TB of space but will be 1-1, 5 to virtual machines and the data on it. processors Xeon 2 x 16 and 256 GB of RAM in each host.

    There are 10 VMs (2008 R2) server on the cluster.

    I also have a G8 DL360 with 5 TB of space on it and an autoloader CF HP 1/8 (I need to make the weekly and monthly strips for compliance requirements).

    I have 4 additional network adapters in the present to connect to the iscsi san network if it is an advantage.

    All my previous backups were backups on tape, but will have to be different.

    I was wondering what is the best solution for me compared to

    What types of backups are best (instant storevirtual, POS or software (Backup Exec and VEEAM are my options)

    Where to store data backups (SAN or a space on the backup win2008 server)

    What kind of backup gives less impact on the performance of the SAN, hosts or VMS running.

    Deduplication is assistance in the management of space, if so what should it be set up.

    If you use StoreVirtual as the underlying storage, no doubt, then take a look at Veeam that deeply integrates the device said, allowing you to use SAN snapshots during the backup process. This, in turn, considerably improves iterator and reduces the impact of the activities of backup from the production environment.

    Apart from him, you can install VB & R on the above mentioned physical server and connect the device to tape it. This deployment will allow you to archive the backup data in the midrange of tape on any basis you want, using special adhesive tape work.

    See you soon.

  • Time for a new internal SSD transfer machine

    My old hard drive my mid 2009 MacBook Pro finally got and no longer works. I have a time Machine back to the top and a new internal SSD.

    How can I start the computer and load my backup to the new drive? I don't know that there are a few steps between the two. Oh and I don't have an OS X startup disk if that would help?

    The simplest way will set up an installer of the USB flash drive to use as a boot drive. You may need to use Mac a friend or go to an Apple store for it.

  • try to get the new TB installation to find the backup profile file

    At the start of Saturday morning of the PC, Thunderbird has acted as if it was a new install, no folders, abook, etc... Firefox has shown no Favorites, etc. In addition, Win 7 can't find my office at startup. I did a complete restore with Carbonite day overnight. No real change, but at least now I can d/l new Thunderbird and Firefox. yesterday couldn't. I am aware of the problems Office win 7 are not yours to solve; just trying to link the situation.

    I finally found my TB of backup profile, with abook.mab and other files, which look like everything is
    there in a file * .default. I try to be VERY careful about the best way to get the new
    TB to find my default backup file, so I do not lose everything. I read profile move, restore, change.

    Any help appreciated.

    Today, I received my new 6 iPhone.  When I try to configure the phone and download all my info to the cloud backup, I get an error message that says new phone is iOS 9.1 - backups from the old phone 6 (no longer works) are iOS 9.3.1 - so I'm stuck.  Happy to upgrade the software, but...

    I cannot go forward, and I'm nervous about losing all my data/images, if I choose 'NEW PHONE'

    Help, please.  I've been without my iPhone since Sunday... was so excited when it arrived today... now I'm going to lose my mind!

    Kim

    Set up as a new phone. Do not restore the backup. Then update to iOS. After the update, delete it (settings > general > reset > erase all content and settings.) After the erase operation, restore the backup to iCloud.

    You cannot restore a backup made with a new version of the iOS on a device that is running an earlier version.

  • Fresh Y580 Windows on new mSATA SSD

    Hello

    I have a question. My OS works on HARD drive, because I don't have a SSD, only the standard HARD disk. I recently bought the new mSATA SSD and now I want to install windows 7 on this new album. I have the OEM version of windows, so can I install new own edition windows Home premium and activate it with the current code? After that, I can download and install the drivers myself.

    I have already created OneKey recovery DVD with the factory settings, just in case.

    It will be nice just install new win and activate it with the existing code, but I've never done this before.

    Thnx for response.

    Hello
    Yes, you can do it. The only problem, which some people have faced is dual-boot. Sometimes, the two storage devices agree when each of them contains an operating system that can lead to errors. It is not important that you would face this, but I've mentioned just to tell you, because you know that beforehand you can meet it.
    Another thing, activation is that the key to COA (certificate of Aunthencity) on the back of your laptop does not work directly. You must contact microsoft to obtain a product key for time to use at this time.
    Ask if any clarity is necessary.
