Hello @Crazyjoe909 

 

As long as the new HDD does not exceed 9.5mm in thickness, you should have no problems. But as far as I know, the 4TB mechanical drives are probably going to be 15mm and wont fit the brackets.

The SSD I plan to get is 6.858mm. Hoping it works, so I can have more games to store. Thank you

Ah, Ok.

So by your other post, you plan on installing a 4TB Sata SSD to replace the 2TB HDD that already came with the unit. Is this correct?

Then you want to add another Sata SSD via a DVD to Sata adapter for a 2nd or 3nd drive?

According to your specs, your motherboard should come with an M.2 NVMe slot. Did you also fill that already?

IF not, you would be money ahead to install one and use it for your Operating System. But you need to open the case and make sure the M.2 slot is soldered to the board first.

 

Here is your manual... http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c06001792

So this is my plan. My OS is running off M.2 Nvme which is about 60% full, I may or may not upgrade that at the time. My 2tb SSHD is at about 90%, which i noticed once it got above 75% full it stated to take a little long to load. At first I was just going to upgrade my 2tb SSHD with a 4tb SSD, till I noticed about that ZIF port being open. If the 4tb SSD fits in that caddy and has not problems with running on that ZIF port I'll leave it at that. But if it does not fit, I'll have to move my 2tb SSHD to the ZIF port and place my 4tb SSD where my 2tb SSHD was. I hope I explained this right. Thank you so much for your time and help.

move the SSHD to the caddy and put the 4TB SSD in the Sata port.

Or you could always just invest in and external drive and not worry about it.
