Flex 4-1580 Hard Drive

I would like to add an additional hard drive to this machine.

Is that possible with this model?

Currently it has the Samsung 256 in it.  And I now have need for more storage and do not/cannot use an external drive.

Hi KL_741,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

Would you have the machine type model (MTM) from the sticker or from here?

It can help us identify the systemboard for any available slot similar to this and this discussion.

 

Platform specifications for the model:

Some: SSD / SATA 6.0Gb/s, 2.5" wide, 7mm high
Some: HDD / SATA 6.0Gb/s, 2.5" wide, 7mm high
Some: SSHD with 8GB NAND flash memory

 

Upgrading current SSD to a higher capacity would be the option to others as some systemboard variants may have available m.2 slot as claimed by fellow member Baby_Daddy on this discussion.

 

I hope this helps answer your query.

Update us how it goes for you.

 

Regards

Hi KL_741,

 

Greetings.

 

Checking on 80VE000GUS for systemboard part number 5B20M32652 do not show any other storage expansion slot other than current SATA port where you have the Samsung 256 SATA SSD.

It is not possible to add another storage drive for this model leaving the option to replace it with a larger capacity SATA drive for more data storage need.

 

Regards

Re: Flex 4-1580 Hard Drive

Hi,

I understand that you can't add a second drive.  I just need more storage and currently have the 256gb solid state drive.  Am I able to replace that with a 1TB SATA regular hard drive?  If so, are there any specific details I need to be aware of or will any SATA drive work?

Hi ChuckC1,

 

Greetings.

 

Click here and put a check on harddrives under commodity. That part lookup page tool would filter you all 10 SATA harddrives for your model along with similar substitutes of 2.5 7mm SATA HDD . You can even replace it with up to 2 TB capacity.
