    AirPods Pro worth it even if you don't have a iPhone?

    Although Airpods are nice and well made, they are made by apple for apple users after all... And as already pointed out, you will lose some features if you use them with android phones, but they will still work. But there are many, many brands of wireless cans that work with just about any...

    Copy Drive

    It doesn't really matter that much, but perhaps you could use the Action menu to "refresh" or "rescan disks" function and see if that changes them around. Or check in your bios that the "C" disk is 1st in your list of choices for boot drives...

    Deciding between 2 drives.

    However, beware that JTC is just an AI-powered clone of JayZ the rapper, which substitutes a little techno-babble for his pimpbo-babble, so take that for what it's worth, hehehehe :) j/k As for the drives, yes either would be fine, but I tend to like Corsair's stuff too....mainly cause I have...
