I have a Dell Inspiron 3558 1TB HDD
Lately maybe due 80 % usage of HDD, my laptop is
my laptop is soooooooo slow that it takes almost 2 minutes to boot
I am thinking of extending my storage by adding an SSD
BUT I even don't want to lose my data
I have browsed and I can only replace the HDD with SSD(My financial status is not so good to buy a 1 TB SSD)
suggest me a way that I can have my previous HDD and a new SSD(where I will install my os)
My friend was suggesting something about SSHD(solid-state hybrid drive) by Seagate
Thank you for your attention
You cannot add an SSD or an SSHD hybrid - you must replace the hard drive. If you wish to retain the existing drive, you'll need to mount it in a USB external case -- and use it externally.
While a hybrid drive may be somewhat faster than a conventional hard drive, it won't come anywhere near the performance of a native solid state drive.
