User Case: Can You Upgrade SSD in Lenovo Yoga 730 13?

Lenovo Yoga 730 13-inch (13IKB) SSD Upgrade       

“I've had my Yoga 730 13IKB for over a year now, and I've recently run out of storage space on my 256 GB SSD. I have been looking online for the right upgrade product for the Lenovo Yoga 730 13 SSD upgrade. Does anyone know what SSDs I can choose from? How should I replace the SSD after purchase?”


- Question from Lenovo forums

Many Lenovo users want to know if they can upgrade the SSD on their computer to get more capacity, and fortunately, you can upgrade the storage on your Lenovo Yoga 730. But by looking at the Yoga's hardware manual, we know that the laptop only supports M.2 PCIe NVMe type SSDs. So you need to be careful when shopping for a new SSD.

Also, your Lenovo Yoga 730 13 laptop only has one M.2 NVMe SSD slot, so you will need a reliable disk cloning software to help you migrate data from your system or original hard drive when you do an SSD upgrade. Read on for details on performing a Lenovo Yoga 730 SSD upgrade.

Best Data Transfer Software for Lenovo Yoga 730 13

Considering the Lenovo Yoga 730 13 laptop only has an M.2 SSD slot, when doing an SSD upgrade, you may need to migrate the system or data on the old hard drive to the new PCIe NVMe SSD. At this time, I recommend a powerful disk migration software for you - AOMEI Backupper. With its help, you can save all the data on the old disk. You can also boot directly from the cloned disk without reinstalling the system.

Of course, before installing a new drive, we also recommend that you back up your laptop first. Even if you want to reinstall Windows, it's important to save your existing data, and AOMEI Backupper's Disk Backup feature makes it easy for you to do so. All Windows PC operating systems like Windows 11/10/8.1/8/7/Vista/XP are supported by this software. Click the download button below to install this powerful software on your computer. If you are a Windows server user, you can try to upgrade your hard drive with AOMEI Backupper Server.

  1. Connect the new SSD to your laptop with an M.2 PCIe NVMe adapter and make sure it is detectable. Launch AOMEI Backupper. Click Clone -> Disk Clone in order.

Final Words
