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

2018-04-18, 19:44 PM

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?
