Re: What are the risks of installing the latest version of F

You didn't state what version your using. Yes, FF is a bit slower than Chrome, but for me its more stable. I'm using FF version 89, and its much faster than previous versions. I guess its how you use your browser that makes a difference. A second or two slower than Chrome doesn't make any difference...

Re: UEFI dual boot Installation questions

The best first insurance is to backup your Windows partitions(s). If you are going to re-size the partition don't use CloneZilla.

Re: Clone an SSD drive.

@hack3rcon

copy and paste the output of

Code: Select all

lsblk -f
so we can see what special partitions your talking about. Clonezilla or fsarchiver is what I use.

Re: optimal configuration of M.2 NVMe PCIe SSDs
