Flex 5 14" (14ARE05) storage upgrade?

2020-10-17, 12:34 PM

I would like to know if I can add an SSD to my laptop since it only came with 250 GB.

 

I do not want to replace my existing SSD but I want to add one. Is that possible?

Solved! See the solution

Welcome to the forum.

 

According to IdeaPad_Flex_5_14ARE05_Spec.PDF there is only one M.2 PCIe NVMe slot.

 

If you want to keep the data on your existing SSD then one option would be to copy ("clone") it to the new disk. In order to do that you will need to put the old SSD in a USB external enclosure and the new SSD inside the Flex 5, then run cloning software. Once you are satisfied that the new SSD works, you could reformat the old SSD and use it as an external drive. That's  not ideal but you'll need to get the external enclosure regardless.
