HP Z2 Tower G4 M.2 storage (PCIe Gen3 x4) expansion slot, what is max size card in each slot? I would like to upgrade one slot to a Samsung (MZ-V7S1T0B/AM) 970 EVO Plus SSD 2TB - M.2 NVMe Interface Internal Solid State Drive with V-NAND Technology

Will this work, and/or is this supported?

Hi,

 

HP normally supports 2280 M.2 drives.

 

The Samsung 970 should work.

Thanks. My other question is the size of M.2 storage. My M.2 slot 1 already has 1TB, and I wanted to add the Samsung SSD in the second M.2 slot. I know that 1TB will work, but want to add 2TB in that slot, and want to be sure that a total of 3TB in both M.2 slots is supported by the system. Therefore, what would be the max TB's I could install in total, both slots?

Hi,

 

You're very welcome.

 

Your PC supports two NVME drives. Windows 10 can handle much greater than 2 TB storage volumes.

 

You should have no problems adding a second 2 TB NVME SSD.

 

Just make sure you initialize and format the new disk in Windows Disk Management or Windows File Explorer will not see the new, clean disk.
