That unit has a boot device, an M.2 NVMe 256GB SSD.  But you have a 1TB hard drive, usually for data files.

Your inquiry:

1) A quality NVMe of 1TB would have the following characteristics, as shown here, read of 3400Mb/s.

    An inferior quality NVMe would have read of 2400Mb/s.

2) You can clone the 256 to the 1TB with Macrium Reflect 7 free software.  Here is the manual, also.

3) You need an M.2 NVMe to USB3.0 adapter (enclosure) for the 1TB. After the clone process, you swap the devices.

4) At the end, you will have a 256GB External device at USB3.0 speed.
