    How do I stop my Mom from using her 120 GB SSD for pictures too instead of just Windows and Applications?

    Just get another drive and be done. A 512GB is less than $50 iirc. edit boom.. TLC if QLC isn't your thing. https://www.microcenter.com/product/623042/inland-professional-512gb-ssd-3d-tlc-nand-sata-30-6-gbps-25-inch-7mm-internal-solid-state-drive

    My New SSD drive from BHPhoto appears to have been used before?

    B&H is legit. I've been there many times. Fantastic service, great people. It's where the NYC film industry shops. Doesn't get much more Pro than that.

    OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro

    Just picked up the TMobile 7t. Only dislikes are the crazy high standby drain. ie: I'll charge the freshly formatted phone - nothing personal added yet, unplug it, walk away for 8 hours (intentional non-scientific test), come back and it'll have used up 27-30% of the battery. And the system...

    [H]AWT! Intel 2TB NVME - 180$ - Microcenter In Store

    It probably ultimately is a non issue for my usage habits, but I just swapped my 2TB 660p for the 2TB Inland over endurance fears. I've been using a bootable USB-C -> NVME enclosure so I'm not really noticing much of a speed difference, but I've ordered a Thunderbolt 3 NVME enclosure which...

    Picked up the 2TB Inland today. Going into a bootable thunderbolt 3 enclosure for my Mac mini 2018. Ignore the $315 tag, it was $220ish.

    WD 8TB Elements Desktop USB 3.0 External Hard Drive $129 @ B&H

    I don't have a link (think it's only in store) but if you have a Costco membership, the Seagate 8TB Desktop Backup Plus Hub is $119 ($169 - $50). Just got one, my old 1.5TB backup drive was getting cramped.
