Does anyone know the procedure to upgrade a Dell XPS 15 Touch SSD from 512G to 1TB?
I have read you can use Acronis True Image to do this but you have to place the 512G in an
external enclosure and the 1TB in the laptop.The problem is all the external SSD enclosures
that I have found that are USB 3.0 accept an M.2 2280 SSD that has a SATA 3 interface.
The SSD in the laptop has a PCI-E 3.0 X4 interface. I cannot find an enclosure that has this
interface. Has anybody done this before with success?
Go to Solution.
You'll be better off imaging the existing system to an external hard drive, and then booting to recovery media and restoring the image once you've swapped the drives.
There is only one external PCIe box I've seen, and it connects to Thunderbolt (it's designed for Mac) -- and it's several hundred dollars -- from Sonnet Technologies.
