How do I upgrade my storage?

My asus proart studio came with two 512gb m.2 ssd populating both the m.2 slots and they came configured in a RAID 0. How would I upgrade the storage to a single 2tb m.2 ssd?

O.K thanks. What we needed was the model ASUS ProArt StudioBook 15 H500GV-XS76. Different model’s layout of components and how they disassemble can be different. This YouTube video should help:

Current two 512 GB PCIe drives to left and right just above the battery in video.

So to upgrade the storage, get an M.2 to USB 3.0 (get 3.2 Gen 2 (10 Gbps) if possible) enclosure and install the new drive in it. Connect USB cable and boot up. The manufacturer of the new 2TB M.2 SSD drive should have a free drive cloning program on their web site to download. Read the instructions for the cloning software. Clone to the new drive. Unplug everything - charger, USB enclosure. Unscrew cover screws as shown in video. Open case and disconnect battery.

Discharge power by holding down power button. Discharge yourself of static electricity by touching something metal. Only touch what is necessary for the job. Unscrew and take out the two 512GB PCIe drives - carefully keeping the screws. Install new drive in one of the M.2 SSD slots and screw gently into place with one of the screws you saved. Reconnect main battery and reassemble bottom cover. Power up system. If all went according to directions the laptop will boot up like nothing had happened. Viola 2TB of storage!

Good luck.

P.S. b = bit and B = byte which is commonly 8 bits numbered 0 to 7. And your drives are M.2 NVMe’s

Hi @aactech ,

Doesn't BIOS need to be reconfigured from a RAID configuration back to single SSD after cloning?

I don't know much about RAID so apologies if it doesn't ;-)

(see p.69 of the user manual)

Hi @jayeff ,

Thanks, good point. Hadn't done one for ages so did check to be sure. The OS just sees it as one drive, which is what I thought.

Ooops - you said the BIOS but wouldn't it just default to the "normal" drive. So Koosh check that anyways in BIOS. With SSD's I've completely abandoned RAID. I haven't used them much since my network server days and a few data recovery jobs..

@aactech

Fair enough.

@ Koosh The manual shows how to delete a RAID set (see p.71) so perhaps it may be safer to do this AFTER cloning the new SSD and before booting into the new SSD and then the BIOS will only "look" for the one SSD and possibly not for two and confuse things.

Cheers

@jayeff

I'm the curious type so would try both to see what happens - but that's what I do.

@aactech

I agree, that's how I learn ;-)
