I recently purchased the HP Z1 G9 Tower Desktop (Product No. 6J3G1PA#ABG) and want to add extra storage - in particular SATA 3.5" Hard Drives - but looks like the hard drives need a hard drive caddy. The manual is suggesting a 9.5 mm Drive Carrier - but I can't find a part number anywhere so I can order this Drive Carrier... does anyone have any ideas?

Welcome to our HP User Forum!
Your HP Z1 G9 Tower Desktop according to: https://kaas.hpcloud.hp.com/pdf-public/pdf_5175419_en-US-1.pdf, has two PCIe M.2 2280 SSD slots for storage, which I would recommend using for (mass) storage, because of speed.
As far as a 9.5mm bracket is concerned to hook up SATA 3.5" Hard Drives, something like this example: https://www.amazon.com/ORICO-Adapter-Mounting-Bracket-Interface/dp/B01LZWX6PD/ref=sr_1_2_sspa?crid=1..., or this example should do it: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07FXW2S7W/ref=sspa_dk_detail_0?psc=1&pd_rd_i=B07FXW2S7W&pd_rd_w=5y1Sl&con....
Hope this was helpful.

sata hard drives are not 9.5mm tall they are usually 19.99mm tall
the most common 9.5 and 12 mm heights are usually for the laptop style optical drives if your system supports this
2.5in drive heights are available in 5, 7, 9.5, 12.5, 15 or 19 (all mm)
your system supports 3.5, 2.5, M.2 drives and 9.5mm optical
please check the service manual for your system for more information that HP posts online
