I am considering purchasing a second M.2 drive, might get away with a 128gb one?

I have noticed that after I reload Windows & X-Plane VR it runs much smoother on a clean fresh install of Windows (I only load Oculus & Steam + X-Plane)

The idea is to keep the first M.2 drive as a "CLEAN" boot drive and not let windows and other apps mess with my clean X-Plane VR enviroment.

Then have my second M.2 drive as a normal windows boot drive and let windows screw that one up over time with load of bloatware and rubbish

My question is would it be OK to install a second copy of X-Plane on the second copy of windows or would this be classed as a second machine? & then I would get my finger chopped off by Laminar?

Thanks guys for a great bit of software, VR still blows me away I am just trying to get the very best out of the top consumer flight sim in the world.

Keep up the great work, regard Dave.

This would work, no problem at all.

You can have as many copies of X-Plane as you wish, on as many computers as you wish.
1 licence = 1 instance runnning at a time

Note that the only benefit you will have from using a M.2 drive, compared to a SSD or HD will be a shorter initial loading time at.

I do not even know if the difference between M.2 and SSD is noticeable.

Thanks for the reply Guillaume,

I don't think this is correct, as when I first got XP my serial number was disabled as I used it on more than one machine (not at the same time) and had six or seven installs... on the same machine due to malware & machine upgrade + SSD & M.2 upgrades.

Can LR comment on this please.

That's interesting. At that time, did you contact Laminar Research customer service at [email protected] for explanations? I think you should still do it..

Yes I had to email them to get my serial number re-enabled.

Think I spoke to Randy via email & was informed 1 licence = 1 machine (with a max of 2 copies of XP)
