    The sn850 is only going to be an improvement if you are on a new AMD Ryzen setup with PCIe Gen4.

    Save your money and get the 750. I have 750s and an 850 (have a new Ryzen system). Only time I see an improvement is when running a benchmark. Real world..no difference for me.

    Agree
    I have a 2100MB/s read M.2 drive and only see the difference to a SATA SSD on the benchmark.

    The best way to free space on the boot drive is to move your data to another drive, not programs.
    I have a small M.2 SSD (128G) and a 1T HDD. Have moved \users from the SSD to the HDD.

    This is what I am getting with my WD-Black m.2 SSDs

    I see that a SN750 is the way to go.

    If I move my User folder to the D: drive I may have problems as there is a User folder there along with the User folder on C: drive. That could lead to a complicated mess.

    Another free option for backup/cloning: Software and Firmware Downloads | WD Support

    It's a Western Digital version of Acronis True Image. Requires that at least one of your drives be from WDC. The download is largish (800MB), and TI may have more capabilities than you need, but it's free.

    There's a way to do that properly.

    I think there are tutorials on this site.

    Several highly experienced members can instruct you on how to do this.

    I don't use the Users folder myself, so can't help you personally.

    If you MOVE there will be no more C:\Users and only D:\Users

    How can I move C;\Users when there already a D:\Users?

    What do I do with the present D:\Users?

    How do you have a D:\users?
    Was the drive once a boot able drive?

    Sounds like it. I had the same when I was running two OS's on different drives. If I wanted to boot to the other, I'd simply go into the BIOS and switch boot drives. The active system became C, the other became D.
