Add HDD to e595 (second drive)

2020-10-18, 10:40 AM

I've just bought an e595 (20NF) with a 256G SSD , and I'm assuming I can add an HDD as a second drive. I could use some help in two areas: Could someone please tell me the specs of an HDD that will work, and could someone direct me to a link to instructions or a video on how to add a second drive. The service manual has some info, but a little more might be helpful. Thanks in advance!

Solved! See the solution

in my E495 I mounted a 2.5" SATA SSD, a crucial MX500, so I guess any 2.5" HDD would do. Well maybe NOT those 4TB 15mm thick ones :PAlso you might need the SATA cable ribbon, more on this you can find in the service manual. You should find it in the lenovo support portal

If the existing SSD in the laptop is m.2 type, you could add the 2nd 2.5" drive, either SSD or HDD, 7 mm high.

Follow the video below, "Internal Storage Drive Replacement":

https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/HT511073

 

As you see, the drive plastic bracket and the cable are needed, they could be absent in your laptop.

 

This HMM manual might be helpful either

x220 - Thanks for your help, and the links. Looks like I have to take it apart to see if the SSD is taking up the larger bay. Thanks again!

The laptop MTM code is enough to specify its components, SSD type including. Though you can grab the SSD model in any HW info tool.
