I just received my lovely Envy 17-j011sa and I'm really happy with its performance.
But a little question has assaulted me.
I've added a 2nd Hard Drive, a 500gb ssd, and everything seems perfect, but due to software requierements i'm forced to use a third drive too.
I'd have no problem attaching a drive thru usb3, but that means is not easily portable anymore.
I've been reading that in some HP laptops, like the Zbook, you can replace the optical drive with a caddy for adding an extra hdd/ssd.
Is that possible on mine one. If so, does HP sell the replacement? (i would feel much more relaxed having an oficial replacement)
Many thanks in advance.

Hi Miguel_Riveiro, welcome to the HP Forums. Looking at page 55 of the Maintenance and Service Guide; the list of available optical drive bay parts does not include the drive caddy you are referring to.
While I am not sure if this exists in official capacity, you can always contact support to enquire to the possibility.
HP technical support: 800-474-6836. If you live outside the US/Canada Region please click the link HERE to get the support number for your region.
