    Arrow Replacing M.2 drive - couple of questions

    Hi all,

    My mobo is a Maximus X Formula.

    I will soon be replacing my M.2 drive (the one onboard with the heatshield cover and thermal pad).

    My questions are:

    1) Am I ok to re-use the thermal pad? The old M.2 is a 960 EVO 250GB, the new will be 960 PRO 512BG.
    I ask because the chips will have surely left dents in the thermal pad, so it won't contact as well?

    2) Best software to clone the old drive to the new one? (I can't be bothered to re-install Windows etc.. tbh)
