Can I remove the hard drive from my Yoga 2 Pro and plug it into an SATA drive and transfer the data?

Tried yesterday with an SATA adapter (unpowered) and my Yoga 920 would ding that something was plugged in, but wouldn't show it in File Explorer.

Traded the unpowered drive for a powered one and the same result, a ding but nothing shows up.

 

Is there something else that I can do?

 

Thanks in advance

I am confused.  You are talking about an mSATA -> USB adapter?  mSATA-> 2280 SSD?  What is a powered mSATA adapter?

No, not an mSATA, just SATA.

I guess the "m" must be the answer to my problem?
