It is a CTO machine therefore we can't get its specs but it can be similar to the following machine

 

                 https://support.hp.com/au-en/document/c06661145

 

The question is  machine can have dual storage as the above machine

               

Hard drive
  • 512 GB PCIe® NVMe™ M.2 SSD
  • 1 TB 7200 rpm SATA

 

Which drive is too small and you wish to replace or add ? 

 

Regards.

Looks like you do not use 1TB. You can direct all your download files to other drive, not C:. Please use the following way to set default files locations:

Still not enough, you can upgrade

 

  1. 512GB SSD to 2TB and
  2. 1TB SATA to 2TB too (larger capacity would be to thick for your machine).

You should be able to upgrade to larger drive using same existing brand or

                   https://www.samsung.com/au/memory-storage/970-evo-nvme-m2-ssd/MZ-V7E2T0BW/

                   https://www.crucial.com/products/ssd/crucial-p2-ssd

           Or similar from reputable vendors.

 

One example

I did say you can have 2 physical drives

 

  • the first one is M.2 SSD (already)
  • the second one is 2.5" SATA HDD/SSD

That mean you can add the second drive to your machine, and keep the first drive. The following Guide gives you some idea (pp 1, 2, 33).
