Hello,
How do I upgrade the Disk Space on my Laptop. I play a lot of RTS games and right now I can only download 3 RTS games before Im out of space. I knew this model came with low space, just want to make sure I get the right part. Its a new Omen Laptop 17in model. Thanks for the help in advance.

That's just showing the Intel iGPU: switch to the dedicated graphics before running the test.

Can you post the Link at the top of your browser here? It will give us more Info.
First of all, you can install games onto your hard drive as well if your SSD is full.
The SSD in your current system is M.2, likely sata, but I can't confirm this. I never knew LiteON made SSDs.

Go into steam settings ane create a new steam library on your hdd. Now your games can go on the hdd.
Your current SSD is an 128gb m.2 drive, but i cant seem to figure out if it is sata or nvme. It isnt from a well know brand, so its hard to find info. Hps website saya it comes with a 128gb nvme and 1tb, but if I google your drives model it says sata.

I added the new library for the HDD, mad I overlooked that. lord.
I assume the specific type your looking for determines what I need to get to be compatible?

You can look up the model number if you're interested in the interface, it's an M.2 NVME SSD.

Im not sure if his laptop supports nvme or just sata m.2 drives, which makes it hard to reccomend an upgrade.
His current SSD is a Liteon model, so finding info on the manufacturer's site is very hard. I have found eBay listings with the same model number that say a sata 3 m.2 drive

If you want a cheap solution the best is to take care of data on the drives. Stay updated remove everything what you dont use and make a disk cleanup.
