Solved!

Upgrade SSD from 256GB to 512GB

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion All-in-One 24-xa0xxx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I am running out of space on the system drive (Windows 10) and want to upgrade the 256GB SSD drive to 512GB SSD.  I think I am capable of cloning the existing SSD drive to the new drive but would welcome any suggestions to ensure this goes well.  I would also like to know how to get access to the hard drive as there does not appear to be any screws at the back of the computer where all the cable plug in.

@casey42 , welcome back to the Community.

 

What is the Product Number of the computer? I need this information to review the specifications of it. Please don't furnish the Serial # or other personal information. You can find the Product Number at the bottom of the page when you open HP Support Assistant.
