Thanks Herman. I've had a hard time with it, I'm sure I'm using the wrong settings, and since it's from 9 years ago I presumed it just wasn't current enough to be usable. I'll keep trying though!
Thanks Guy. After Christmas I'll be buying an SSD and seeing how that improves things. Thanks for the help!
Sorry, I just meant the easy cloning of my existing hdd would make it easier to install a SSD for my C: drive.
I've just been googling and apparently with some of these HP laptops there's space for two HDDs, and cloning them is apparently pretty easy, so I might be able to make this work. Thanks!
Thank you so much that's exactly the kind of attitude I'm trying to have.
That is really interesting. I checked and my laptop's not running from an SSD drive. Do you think maybe if I purchased an SSD drive and used it externally to edit on I'd get the same benefit?
