    Acronis and Macrium are similar. If you already have Acronis TI installed, you might as well try that. You'll still need to make a boot drive, so that you can restore the image backup to the new SSD.

    This guide is a little old, but the steps should be similar:

    Macrium Reflect works with Windows 11.

    I'm not sure what version of Acronis you have. If it works on Win10, it will probably with Win11.

    I would have used Acronis True Image or Macrium Reflect instead. If I remember correctly, Windows Backup will only restore the partitions to the same exact size. If you are moving to a larger drive,...

    You should always check the BIOS/UEFI first. If the drive is not detected there, then the Windows installer won't see it either.

    You could also try shucking the drive and connecting it to a powered USB SATA adapter or internal SATA port.

    I'm guessing you are trying to change the drive letters in Disk Management? Please confirm and/or provide a screenshot.

    What kind of drive are you trying to re-letter? Internal, external?

    What did you previously have on the Seagate drive?

    If anything, you could delete the G: partition, and then create a new NTFS one.

    If the long test is successful, use Disk Management to reformat the drive. You could also delete the existing partitions on the drive and create a new one.

    First off, you don't need to upgrade to Win11 right away. Win10 will be supported until 2025. Personally, I'd stick with Win10 for now.

    6th generation (Skylake) Core CPUs are not officially...

    You could create an image backup of the HD, and then restore it to the SSD. I use Acronis TrueImage, but you could also use something like Macrium Reflect. WD and Seagate have free versions of TI.

    Sorry, no. There is only 1 slot for RAM, so you must replace the existing RAM to upgrade your computer.

    What are you playing on VLC? Netflix is a streaming service, so you can't really compare that to VLC, which is just a media player.

    It's hard to know what shorted out. If the motherboard got damaged, there's no way to "reset" that.

    Definitely disconnect the drive you connected when it shorted out.
