Introdução

Each and every computer will need a permanent memory storage to store large amounts of data. Typically, a computer will include a hard drive, which is the standard form of storage. The solid state drive (SSD) loads and reads files faster than a standard hard drive, and are often lower in storage capacity. If your device is loading slower than normal or if you can’t access the files in your computer, your SSD may be corrupted and needs to be replaced.

This guide is to replace a faulty SSD or upgrade to an SSD with more capacity. Ensure that the computer is completely powered off and backups have been made before beginning this guide.
