Does my desktop have an empty drive bay?

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion Desktop - 510-p050st CTO S/N: CNV6500283
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

This desktop has not been altered since purchased in 2017.

I am a photographer, and my 700MB of photos are outgrowing the installed 1TB hard drive.

If this chassis has an empty drive bay, it would be easy to install a second hard drive (just for my photos).

But I cannot find the original product specifications.

Does anyone know whether this desktop has an empty drive bay?

Where to find that info?

Thank you.

@rpair 

Are you sure you meant a paltry 700MB of data ?  That is less than 1 GB.  The stock internal HD is 1TB (aka 1000 GB, of which 931GB is available). Your HP 510 series computer only has 2 SATA data headers, and both are used. (HD and DVD drive). Simple solution would be to add an external SSD SATA HD to USB3.0 device.
