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)

Cheers

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

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 ;-)

I've the exact same machine! This post is old, but hopefully someone else benefits.


In order to use RAID in this setup, one of the drives HAS to be an INTEL NVMe SSD! That is the only way the RAID will work.
And if you try cloning the RAID to another drive and installing - won't work.

I ended up ditching the 2x 512GB Samsung NVMe sticks and replaced them with 2x Sabrent 4TB NVMe sticks - no RAID, cause it didn't work anyhow!


Asus tech support is pretty lame in this regards. They knew nothing about nothing and kept reading from the User Guide, almost verbatim!

YMMV, cheers,

Howdy,

I just got to the point where I want to upgrade my H500GV.

A couple of questions, assuming you still monitor this:

Did you format the new 4TB as NTFS after seeing it in an external enclosure, while still booting windows from the raid drive? Did you boot to a bit-for-bit clone software then clone your raid drive to the new 4 TB? What software did you use for that? After copying or cloning, did you try a boot from the new drive before putting it into your StudioBook? Did you delete the raid from the bios before putting in the new boot drive?

Last question, I promise: I assume everything booted okay off the new boot ssd, and then your second new 4TB ssd showed up in Disk Manager as a new drive you could format and assign a drive letter to: is that correct?

Thanks for reading this. I know it's involved but so is the process of upgrading away from the raid.

Regards,

Barry

Hey Barry,

Just stumbled in, maybe a little late, but better than never.

The RAID will only work if one of the NVMe's are Intel brand!

I didn't copy or clone anything. I pulled the old SSD's out, popped in the 2 new 4TB drives and (I think I) disabled the RAID in the BIOS (I actually can't recall if the option was even there as their were no Intel drives installed anymore).

Then I ran the Windows installer from a USB and let the install do it's work. The machine has it's embedded Windows 10 code.

From there everything ran smooth.

Hope this helps if you're still fighting with it.

Cheers
