Introduction

Boot time and the amount of time it takes for the device to read and write information are directly related to the storage in your device. Over time, this storage can become slow; in extreme cases, it can become corrupted. In addition, it is also possible that the amount of storage your device has isn’t enough for your needs, so you might wish to replace it with a larger capacity drive. For those looking to replace or upgrade the storage on their Lenovo Yoga 910-13IKB, Lenovo has made it simple; this replacement requires only a JIS #00 screwdriver.
