Get yourself a secondary SATA3 SSD and you are good to go, something 500GB or 1TB.

@Gamermom08   You are asking for a step by step instruction on how to add a hard drive, correct?


If so, you need to remove the Access Panel, Front Bezel and Drive Cage Bracket first. Then you can add the hard drive. You will probably have to places you can add the drive to. You can add it to either spot.


Note 1: it may or may not have screws in place to mount the drive. 3.5inch HDD's use standard #6-32 UNC screws if needed.

Note 2: If you go with an economical 3.5inch HDD, it will fit just fine. If you go with a 2.5inch Sata SSD, you will have to have an adapter bracket to fit the spot. Example... 2.5 to 3.5 adapter bracket

Note 3: You will probably need a Sata cable to connect the drive with. You will have to look inside and determine the length. The power supply should already have a connection for the power.
