Welcome to the Dell Community  @Marz77 

Yes it is possible.

Crucial MX500 1TB SATA 2.5" 7mm (with 9.5mm adapter) Internal SSD:

These parts are 100% compatible with Inspiron 15 (3576)

4TB ssd is possible.

HOWEVER

F6 mass storage drivers are required to "see" the drive.

@Marz77 

Yes 4TB SSD's have been available for sometime now.

If you want to spend $600 - $1000+

This one is $200 less than the one on Amazon.

Shop around before you purchase.

@U2CAMEB4ME  what I’m confused about is that a tech @ Dell told me I could only replace it with a 256gb ssd, I didn’t think it would be an issue putting the same size drive in.

Prices for 7mm drives are very reasonable now.

I still tend to recommend the SAMSUNG versions however.

OCZ’s SSD DRIVES ARE never recommended. Toshiba purchased them when they went bankrupt. So I would be leary of getting anything from them.

If you look at the specification for the "Storage" it says:

Solid-state driveUp to 256 GB

https://www.dell.com/support/manuals/us/en/04/inspiron-15-3576-laptop/inspiron15-3576_ss/storage?gui...

That is what Dell sold and test for your model.

That is what they can only recommend.

256 GIG is NOT the Limit its the max they offer for sale.

Replacing the drive is not trivial and you must be CAREFUL with the flex cables and connectors.
