New Pavilion with extra HDD ?

HP Recommended
New Pavilion for home use
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi, looking to replace my 8 year old workhorse Pavilion.  I do not need fancy graphics, but plenty of disk space, currently I have 2 * 1 TB HDD installed.  Browsing thru the HP webstore in Sweden, seems difficult to find one stationary kit with SATA expansion
drive built-in.  Max I can find is 1 TB and no expansion slots.  What would be a suitable config to get a really big HDD as I 
do a lot of video editing (Premiere) stuff ?

The unit has a physical M.2 socket 3 Key M NVMe 128GB device, and a storage drive of 1TB.  Your could swap out the 1TB for a 4TB drive,  as long as you use it for data only.  Describe the existing power cable that goes from the DVD and HD.  Is it one cable with 2 SATA power connections?
