Can I add additional hard drive to my yoga 20CDCTO1WW? My installed SSD drive is too small (duh).

The best way is to check PSREF or Notebookcheck's review. ThinkPad Yoga have two slots for disks:

- 2.5" SATA3 SSD/HDD up to 7mm high.

- M.2 2242 SATA3 cache SSD.

 

M.2 2242 slot was used for cache SSD, which increase performance of HDD disk. Normal M.2 2242 SATA3 may also work, but you will need to check it yourself. Be aware, that there's no bigger than 512GB SSD in this size (there's only single Transcend model), which are really pricey. Also try to avoid ADATA disks as they are known to have high failure rate.

There's only the one bay in the S1.  You can replace the drive. 

I installed the Samsung SSD 850 PRO 1TB [MZ-7KE1T0BW] as a replacement.

I did my research on youtube to see the best way to open it up without cracking the case.

I stumbled across several including one put out by Lenovo

You can transfer your system using a USB to ide SATA adapter.

Samsung has a data migration utility

  • plug it in
  • run the migration utility
  • open it up with care
  • blow out any dust as long as it's open
  • swap the drive
  • put it back together
  • start it up

it's not hard, just takes some time.

I don't think I had to touch the BIOS.  I honestly don't remember.

Make sure your BIOS and all software and drivers are current
