Dell Inspiron 5577 ssd upgrade

Jump to solution

I have a Dell Inspiron 5577 with 128 GB of SSD and 1 TB of HDD.

However 128 gb of ssd. I've been thinking about upgrading the stock NVME SSD, but I don't really want to screw up the system. I just found out that I can replace my HDD with a with a SATA SSD. Is that true? 

Can my system run all these SSD without any problems?

If I decide to upgrade the NVME ssd, say, to 1TB, will the system be able to handle it?

If you replace the NVMe drive, which likely has Windows 10 installed on it, you will need to find a way to copy all the data over the new one. You can also reinstall Windows and all your apps on the new NVMe drive, which will take longer to do. Specifications state that your computer can support up to a 512 GB NVMe SSD.

Yes, you can replace the hard drive with a 2.5" SSD. It won't be as fast as a NVMe, but still faster than a HDD.
