More storage space on Omen?

HP Recommended
Omen by HP

Hey all I’m trying to figure out a way to get more storage space on my laptop so I can download an update on a game. I’m currently maxing out at 119 gb which does t seem like very much. I’ve gone through and tried to delete files that I don’t use but it’s still not enough. I’m thinking about taking it geek squad to see if I can somehow add more space but This is my first laptop so this is all new to me. Is it possible to add more space? If so, how and can I do myself or would I be better off taking it somewhere? What would I be looking at price wise?

 

any help would be much appreciated!

What is your Omen by HP  ? Normally you can add more storage to an Omen by HP . My Omen has dual storage

Sorry about that. I have the Omen by HP laptop 15. I pulled up the device manager like your screen shot and there are 2 options there. So maybe I do? I guess I’m just not sure how to switch to the other storage device. I tried clicking both and going back out and checking storage again and it still says 116gb out of 119gb used. How would I activate the other storage unit so I can use that?

You don't need to activate, it's there for you to use.

 

Not all apps/programs allow you to install on the secondary drive but you can store your files/data to the secondary dive. Please use the following instructions
