DELL Inspiron 15 305

A client requested that I upgrade the hard drive to 1TB. With SSD this would mean cloning across using either cloud or a device that would achieve this. But when I opened up the Dell I discovered a space for a 2.5″ SSHD which was a pleasant surprise. So the following steps were made to installl this additional drive

  1. Fit a a thermal cover to reduce heat on the SSHD
  2. Fit in position
  3. Start up laptop
  4. Go to Computer Management via right mouse click and select from list
  5. Format the said drive – and set any partitions if needed
  6. Rename the volume of the drive
  7. Check in File Explorer the drive is visible.
