The G7 15 supports and has been tested by Dell to support up to a 1TB NVME SSD. Transferring from one NVME drive to another is a bit tricky. You can use a program like Macrium Reflect Free to make a backup file to an external drive or, if you also have an internal HDD, to that drive. Then using the Macrium create a rescue USB to boot from and restore the backup to the new drive. Of course if you do not have anything important to keep you can always clean install Windows 10 on the new drive. The following video describes how to install an NVME drive and use of Macrium.

Just wondering if I can upgrade my 128gb SSD to possible a 250gb or even a 500gb. This is my c drive so does anyone also know how to transfer everyone from one SSD to the new SSD? Thanks
Just upgraded mine to 1TB Samsung 970 Evo and it's great.
I completely reinstalled Windows because transferring would have been slower (Windows installed in 5 minutes). Just copy your important files from your current 128gb SSD to another drive, then copy them back once Windows is reinstalled
If you do a fresh install of windows, what do you do about the product key? Will the install pick that up from your motherboards MAC? Or have to buy a new copy of windows? Thanks!
Once you do a fresh install of Windows the product key is stored on on a chip and will be automatically detected. You do not need to purchase another key code. Below is information to download and install Dell OEM Windows 10.
