Adding another hard drive to

HP Recommended
OMEN by HP Desktop PC - 870-260na
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Is it possible to add another hard drive to a OMEN by HP Desktop PC - 870-260na? I currently have an ssd and 1tb HDD that came with the pc but would like to add a 4tb NAS HD as it is not being used.

 

Any help would be great!

Hello @Kamboodle

While you should have 3 HDD slots in the case, you only have 3 Sata ports on the motherboard. Two are taken by your existing hard drives and the third by your DVD drive. So you would have to sacrifice one of those to add the other 4TB drive.

I would instead get an external enclosure for the extra drive and connect it via USB 3.

Example... Amazon basics enclosure
