My current Lenovo is a refurbished one and has a storage drive of 117GB. I desperately need more and have already gone through external storage drive, and also USB. Is it possible to add more storage drive space or SSD to this Thinkpad? What is most compatible with it?
Thank you for your time

2nd gen means the model number starts with 20A7 or 20A8. Those drives were all SATA based, so most retail 2280-format SSDs will work (not NVMe). The biggest drives that were sold with the machine were 512GB, although 1TB and 2TB drives can be found. The safest thing is to buy one with a Lenovo FRU on it. Here is the parts list" (SSDs are at the bottom)

Thank you so much, I am kind of confused and have some questions. So any of those SSD can work with my Laptop? To find any compatible one would be to look at the FRU numbers to related ones of what I am looking for? What does the primary and secondary to some of the SSD?
Thank you for you time

I think that primary just means that they are a primary supplier. In general almost any SATA-based (not NVMe) M.2 SSD in 2280 format (80 mm long) will work.
