Can I Upgrade my laptop hard drive.

HP Recommended
Pavillion 15-bc550na
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi, I have a Pavillion 15-bc550na laptop

 

It is fitted with an M.2. drive, a SAMSUNG MZVLB512HAJQ-000H1, 512Gb

 

Simple question, do I have any upgrade options, specifically in terms of size. Obviously I wouldn't want to slow the machine  down by installing larger but slower drives but I really could do with greater capacity, preferably internal.

 

Can I replace the M.2. with something in the order of 2 TB or even add a second drive with different technology and retain the original M.2. with the OS on it.

 

Regards Ian

Yes, you can replace 512GB with a 2TB M.2 NVMe SSD drive Samsung 970 series drives are good candidates:
