Yoga 2 Pro has an SSD (256G) -- Need SSD external exclosure.

Yoga 2 Pro has an SSD (256G) - machine type 80AY -- Need an SSD external exclosure.   Can't really determine if this is mSata or PCI-E, documentation is inconsistent.  

 

I just want to put this drive in an external enclosure to access the contents.  Please help

 

Any recommendations for such a unit?

 

Thank you in advance.

Re: Yoga 2 Pro has an SSD (256G) -- Need SSD external exclosure.

Hi ssharvancik,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

Checking with the hardware manual FRU list here on page 62 shows mSATA SSD's :

 

SSD, Samsung PM841 128GB mSATA SSD(TLC) part number 16200317 

SSD, Toshiba THNSNH128GMCT 128GB mSATA part number 16200350 

SSD, Samsung PM841-256GB mSATA SSD part number 16200318 

SSD, Toshiba THNSNH256GMCT 256GB mSATA part number 16200351 

SSD, Samsung PM841-512GB mSATA SSD 16200355

 

What I suggest is to check specifically what came with your machine using your serial number here on the parts look up page to get your part number and SSD manufacturer details.

 

Example SSD, to check which mSATA to USB enclosure adaptor case that is known to work with Samsung PM841-512GB mSATA SSD 16200355.

 

Hope this help answer your query.

 

Regards

Thank you, but I need to find a USB External Enclosure that these drives will function in. Knowing the drives does not seem to help me find the device. If you are not able to recommend something that works, then what specifications do I look for 7mm, 9mm mSata, PCIE, ...

Thank you.

Hi ssharvancik,

 

Greetings.

 

Knowing the drive that you have (checking on parts lookup) would give you more specific details to what you would need. Again as an example with the Samsung PM841-512GB mSATA SSD, you can get the manufacturer manual here

Reversely, you can ask the resellers of the USB mSata Adapter if they have the Samsung PM841-512GB mSATA SSD known to work with their product too.

 

Regards

Re: Yoga 2 Pro has an SSD (256G) -- Need SSD external exclosure.

Hi guys, 

 

I have the same question and as i didn't see a conclusive answer here.... apparently my ssd partnumber is SS MZNTE256HMHP 256G m.2 SSD, 16200610. It's a Yoga 2 13 of which the power unit has broke down, which means replacing the motherboard, as i was told. So, how can i enclose this ssd to be able to connect it to another computer, te retrieve data, through USB eg ?

I upgraded mine Y2P's SSD to Samsung 850 EVO 1TB mSata one year ago.
Then connected Original Y2P's 256GB on this  ZTC Sky Board mSATA to USB 3.0 SSD Enclosure Adapter Case.
Everything is running fine.

Thanks Birraque, but that looks like it won't fit my ssd. i have 2 slots and is (normal) SATA, it seems. I might be wrong.
