Hi,

 

Yes you can add a 2.5" HD or 2.5" SSD but then you would have to give up on using the optical drive since the motherboard only has two SATA ports.  If you take that option, then you could use an external USB connected optical drive if you really need optical media support.

Another choice would be to install a m.2 PCIe NVMe SSD.  The 512 MB models should be sufficient and then you could use the existing HD for data storage.

Thanks Big_Dave!

Unforfotunately I have 3.5" hard drive from my old compyter.

Looks I like I have to use external drive enclosure.

A decent solution.  :smileyhappy:Too bad the USB 3.1 type C port is not a generation 2.:smileyfrustrated:
