Yoga 3 11.6 - 80J8 - Accessing Hard Drive

Hi, I have a Yoga 3 11.6 80J8 notebook. Is there a way of getting my data directly off the hard drive (the notebook itself appears to have died).

 

I'm looking for some form of connector which I can connect the HDD to and possibly into a USB? Not sure if this even exists.

 

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

 

with thanks

 

Alex

Hello and welcome,

 

This is a Yoga 3 1170?  I believe that uses an m.2 SATA SSD.  Something like the below should work.

Hi Scooby5051,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums. 

 

Checking with the hardware manual (page 40) yoga 3 1170 :: 80j8 show how to remove the m.2 SSD NGFF SATA 2280 storage drive. This I think would need an external USB SSD m.2 SATA enclosure similar to this and this as an example.

 

I hope this helps answer your query.

 

Regards
