Microsoft Surface Pro 7+ has swappable SSDs – but Microsoft doesn’t want you to upgrade

Microsoft may have included swappable SSDs for the Surface Pro 7+, but this doesn’t mean you’re getting an upgrade any time soon – at least not with approval anyway.

Despite including the removable SSD, Microsoft admitted that upgrading a larger storage device is “technically possible”, but it strongly discourages users from doing so, cautioning “Installing a non-Microsoft or a Microsoft SSD of different volume than the one provided originally may lead to reduced performance and unsupported configurations.”

This might add some salt to the wounds of anyone who purchased the cheaper 128GB versions of the device with the hope of adding expanded storage at a later date.
