Just purchased my C930 was surprised that my storage was not sufficient for my file transfer (though processing speed is much improved over my old Dell.) How do I increase internal storage? Can I do it myself?

Hi there. Yes, you can upgrade the storage, and you can do it yourself.
The C930 has an M.2 PCIe slot, so you can upgrade to a larger M.2 2280 NVMe SSD. Here are a few options:
You'll need to clone your current SSD to the new one. Here's a good guide for that: https://www.pcmag.com/feature/363387/how-to-clone-a-hard-drive/5
In order to clone your drive, you'll need an M.2 SSD to USB adapter, like this one: https://www.amazon.com/M-2-External-Converter-Adapter-Enclosure/dp/B076DCNZM3. (Technically, you could use the M.2 slot for the wireless card to avoid having to buy an adapter, but it's risker as the slot for the wireless card is a 2242 form factor and the SSD won't just fit in there. In short, I recommend just buying an adapter like the one I linked above).
Circled in red is the storage drive. You'll just need a small Philips head screwdriver for that.
And here is the hardware manual. Refer to page 36 for more detailed info on how to swap out the storage drive: https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/yogac930-13ikb_yogac930-13ikbglass_hmm_201808.pdf
Hope that helps!
