GU603HM SSD upgrade questions

Hi all!

1 month CRAAAAZY happy owner of this phenomenal macine!!!!! It's the best laptop I've ever owned -- WOW!!!!!!

Just upgraded my RAM so I'm now maxed at 40gb -- sa-weetness!

Now I'd like to upgrade my SSD and I just read on a Best Buy review that it actually supports PCIe 4.0.

Questions: 1. is this correct? 2. If so, how do I migrate all the important stuff to a new, PCIe 4.0 drive? 3. What's the max capacity SSD -- can I add a 2TB SSD? 4. Any recommendations on best drive to get? I'm looking at the WD_Black SN850.

Thanks in advance everyone!

Nevermind -- I just found this thread that answers all my questions:

https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?125474-M16-Raid-0-Performance-not-as-expected&highlight=GU...

Turns out the main SSD slot is PCIe 4.0 but the secondary is 3.0

Migrating OS can be done with https://shop.paragon-software.com/80/?scope=checkout&cart=226109&enablecoupon=false&cfg=paragon2018

Not sure what max capacity is, but in the above thread, the person has two 2TB drives.

Thanks for everyone's help! (nyuk nyuk nyuk)
