What is 2.5 hd/ssd size

Hp 17-an053nr
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I plan on upgrading my laptop with Samsung 860 QVO SSD 4TB - 2.5 Inch SATA 3 Internal Solid State Drive with V-NAND Technology (MZ-76Q4T0B/AM). My question is will it fit??? I've been online looking and have not found anything. Please thank you

@Crazyjoe909 

All 2.5 inch SATA SSDs are essentially the same size.  Some are thinner than others, but all will fit into the area previously taken by a laptop 2.5 inch HDD.

 

My concern is that this large a drive has to be formatted as GPT in order to use all 4TB of it -- and if you currently have a 2;.5 inch SSD, it is likely formatted MBR instead.

I'll be using this as my secondary drive to store games. Would I still have to format it as gpt? If so how do I do that?

OK, thanks -- did not know that.

 

You have a couple of options.

 

First, if you go into Create and Format hard disk partitions, you might be able to use the Microsoft tool to do the formatting -- if it lets you select GPT.

 

Second, if it does not, then download and install the Free version of MiniTool Partition Wizard and use that.
