1. M.2 to M.2 SSD Image Transfer

The M.2 2280 form factor solid state drive is becoming more prevalent in today‘s computers because of its ability to save space and pure speed.  The M.2 port accepts two interfaces, the mSATA and the NVMe, the mSATA has two keys on both sides (B+M) and the NVMe has one key on the right side (B).  The NVMe uses 2 more PCIe lanes than the mSATA, because of this many people are switching to the NVMe interface.  At the time of this writing it is unusual to come across a PC with 2 separate M.2 ports.  Also it is difficult to find adapters that properly accept the NVMe interface.

4. The Future of Paradox Blog

If you have an existing Paradox system you can keep using it but you'll need to skip the Vista operating system and either stick with Windows XP or move to Windows 7. Because better tools exist, you may very well want to put a plan together now for converting to another development tool or at least understand what the future is likely to hold. If you're a power-user or researcher working with data, stick with Paradox.
