M.2 SSD drives are a new smaller form factor type of hard drive that are much faster than traditional 'spinning disk' drives and are found in newer higher end computers. SSD drives will usually cut boot and application start times by about half.

Drives over 2TB must be formatted with a file system having reduced compatibility. NTFS has read/write support on MS Windows and GNU/Linux and read-only support on Mac OS X. Drives less than 2TB can be formated with FAT32 for max support (4GB file limit).
