Microsoft Windows 11

I fitted an extra SSD in my Omen 40L and I see that there are an extra two trays for two
extra SSD/HDD but only one spare power cable.
Why are there not two spare power cables available, one for each tray ?

So that's what I was saying, it's the data cable that's missing.
So check if there is a sata port available on the motherboard, and yes buy another cable to add another hdd / ssd

There are two bays and two twin data cables but only one power cable, did not see any reference or labels

mentioning p4 or p5.

In reply to my own post please excusee my ignorance but I made a mistake, I am new to the Omen and PCs in general coming from a Mac background.
On further investigation there are two twin power plug cables making 4 power plugs in total but there is only one data cable.

So if I was to add a second  extra SSD would I need to add an extra data cable for it ?
