w34.us You can upgrade the Lenovo Yoga 13 has spots for 2 SSD! That’s awesome. You could upgrade, but why bother, just add a second one. While 1.8 inch SSD are pretty much only available in up to 256 Gigs that’s what I went with. The Crucial m4 mSATA SSD delivers all of the award-winning performance and reliability of the Crucial m4 SSD – in a drive that’s an eighth of the size. Measuring in at about one-third the size of a standard business card (3cm x 5cm), the Crucial m4 mSATA is designed primarily for ultrathin laptop users who want to dramatically increase their system’s performance. Because of its small form factor, the Crucial m4 mSATA SSD can do things that hard drives and other SSDs often can’t: it can serve as a primary storage device in ultrathin laptops, it can attach directly to the mSATA socket on your system’s motherboard (freeing up a hard drive bay), or it can act as a cache to complement the performance of an existing hard drive. Offering lightweight construction, inherent power savings, travel-worthy durability, and validation for Intel Smart Response technology, the Crucial m4 mSATA SSD packs powerful performance in a tiny mSATA form factor.

so what would you do if you filled both ssd’s and bought that 512…is their a way to transfer or would you have to do something vary complicated like get a exturnal drive save? stuff from 128 then put that stuff on a 512

Martin Kirk says:

Andrew: easy, swap? the 256 with 512 and transfer.. Then swap 512 with 128, and reinsert 256

Martin Kirk says:

Why so many partitions? ?? Folders can compress too in windows.. Partitions locks away free space..
You should rather make VHD’s to store stuff in

Martin Kirk says:

Or? just folders..

saiyaniam says:

Brandon could you do a video on ssd’s? Like information about them, why their so small, how they work, does bigger ssd mean more space? That kinda thing. Just a suggestion, you’re a? great teacher.

Jugularkill says:

Just do what he does, Gogole it. Everything is on Google?

saiyaniam says:

Thats a dumb irritating and common response, don’t? copy other people.

If everyone just searched google there would be nothing on google in the first place.

Danielle Hackley says:

I’ve never done anything like this before. What’s the chances a permanently ruin my computer trying to do this? Or should I just throw my computer and SSD at a more knowledgeable friend? I’m just don’t want to? accidentally mess-up my new laptop.

Effie Sandblom says:

Could you provide more details on the BIOS – what exactly do you? need to do in order for it to recognize the additional SSD – thanks!

martijnroth says:

He said? you only have enter it. After you entered it you can just quit the bios and let it boot. Loading the BIOS will also run a sort of new hardware detection thing, which it doesn’t on default because it asumes ultrabook hardware doesnt change and it only makes the boot times longer.
