Second hard drive in the HP Pavilion p7qe series

I need to keep my data physically separate from the operating system and programs. Can I add a second hard drive to the  HP Pavilion p7qe?

The sales configurator doesn't show adding a second hard drive as an option but the posted technical information does show the ability to add a second hard drive.


These HP 'how-to" articles should be helpful.


Most if not all of the HPE series PCs can accomodate multiple hard drives.
