Light browsing for this i found no replacement harddrive. And looking at the backplate disassembly and battery replacement here on iFixit, I can't for the life of me imagine where you'd fit a normal ssd drive in there, making me believe it has an eMMC drive. As in on a chip, like on a phone.

Found some usefull information about eMMC on How To Geek.

Not an expert here and would happily be proven wrong.

Thanks David, after reading what you said and had another look around i found the emmc chip under the silver plate. I think i am going to have to send it away to get the data off as my screen smashed , discoloured and i can not log in.


Did that work for you @Nicky ? I also need my data !

Is there any methods and ways I can learn how to extract it?

I had this problem owing to a windows update, to re-start I held down the volume switch and at the same time held down the on button this gives a menu with several options. I chose to use the recovery option and the tablet rebooted as normal.

Hope this helps

Hey @badgerfromhell - You could use a mini-HDMI cable to connect to a display with HDMI, because the ATIV Smart PC does have a mini-HDMI display port.

Good luck!
