Inspiron 15 (5558) SSD Upgrade

I was wanting to upgrade my Inspiron 5558 from HDD to SSD, but I am having problems finding compatible SSD. Also I was wondering if I could keep my HDD which holds my all file, but download certain things onto my SSD if I need them to be. I saw some posts about being able to have two hard drives if you have a optical drive which I do.  Please help me out and thank you

You can move the hard drive to an optical bay caddy (Dell doesn't make or support these, but others do sell them).

You'll need a standard 2.5" 7 mm SATA SSD -- NOT a card drive, which this model does not support.  You'll also need to prepare recovery media, since you'll want the operating system installed on the SSD - not on the much slower hard drive.
