@Reuben11 , welcome back to the forum.


I don't believe that you can add a second internal hard drive to your AIO.  There is no M.2 socket available.  I suggest that you buy an external USB hard drive.  There are two options.  You can buy a WD Elements drive or you could buy this adapter which would allow you to use any SATA drive that you prefer.  I am going to buy the adapter and a Samsung EVO 860 to use with my desktop and laptop.
