how comes you guys get through so many drives? i know many arcade owners who have now put them on small SSD drives to facilitate slightly fast load times but most of all endurance.
Just a learning curve. Mine is now on an ssd. I had trouble with cloning onto anything but what was in the machine originally. So ebayed to find those, which were cheap as but very old drives.
I'm not sure how they've managed to get their T7's working on an SSD drive. Most T7 will bluescreen at startup if they're using anything other than the exact model drive that they came with, unless some modification to the windows registry is made.
I paid for a tech guy to clone mine onto an sdd as mine did indeed blue screen. I just assume he has the best cloning software you can get, but either way, I can now clone this ssd and restore to the spare ssd and that works Maybe I should not use free cloning software
