Updating macbook hard drive
Personally, I have several Samsung 830 and 840 drives and a Crucial M500 and can recommend them all highly (top of the pile would be the 840 Pro).
I have a MBP 15" - Mid 2010 with two SSDs (using OWC Datadoubler): Intel 320 and Crucial M500 both working like a charm.
Here's the small list of hardware you need: - new 2.5" HDD or SSD drive - external 2.5" USB enclosure ($10) - #00 Philips screwdriver - T6 screwdriver And 2 software options - Carbon Copy Cloner - free for 30 days, $40 after - Super Duper! used this drive Link: Ne I 13-inch Mac Book Pro, Mid 2010, Sierra Hi I have a Macbook Pro A1278 with El Capitain on a 500gb HD. Once I want to clone a hdd to a ssd, with google I found this guide: you want to do the same task, you can refer it! And after using carbon copy cloner, i've copied everything onto my ssd. If I want update my OS along with this process (swapping out old HDD for new SSD), where (at what step) and how should I do this? I upgraded from stock 1 TB 5400 rpm HDD to 500 GB Samsung Evo 850 SSD. the cloning process is essentially creating the image then copying it/cloning it to your new drive. This process to transfer 180 GB of data took 2 hours.
- free for basic use (all we need here) and $28 for full services I've used both applications for this and both worked equally well for the basic application of hard drive cloning. I bought a 500gb SSD, Hooked it up to a USB 3.0 and Ran Super Duper with Make Bootable checked on. Once I want to clone a hdd to a ssd, with google I found this guide: you want to do the same task, you can refer it! Now if I want to transfer files back and forth between my HD and SSD how would I do that? The Solid State Drive installation took 10 minutes, if that.
Apple has determined that certain 64GB and 128GB flash storage drives used in the previous generation of Mac Book Air systems may fail.
