You can increase the storage capacity of your system by replacing the hard drive (HD) with one of greater capacity. You can purchase a new HD from your reseller or marketing representative.
Attention: The drive is very sensitive. Incorrect handling can cause damage and permanent loss of data on the hard drive.
- Before removing the HD, make a backup copy of all the information on the drive, and then turn the system off.
- Replace the HD only if you upgrade it or have it repaired. The connectors and bay of the HD were not designed for frequent changes, or drive swapping.
- Do not drop the drive or subject it to physical shocks.
- Put the drive on a material, such as soft cloth, that absorbs the physical shock.
- Do not apply pressure to the cover of the drive.
- Do not touch the connector.
- Never remove the drive while the system is operating, in standby mode, or in hibernation mode.
