Yes you can, more is ok but you need to think about many information in there if HDD failed. SSD's on my machines are very small (capacity) I actually keep information on my computers very little; keep photos (more than 50 years history including scanned photos), videos (mainly my grandson) and my documents on SAN. I also keep a copy on other external device.
The quick and easy way:
(a) Buy new HDD and an external enclosure.
(b) Clone existing HDD to new HDD/SSD, using many free cloning software.
(c) Physical swap.
(d) Now you can put old HDD to the external enclosure to use as an external HDD.
