My Inspiron 7559 which I got in 2015 already has an M.2 SSD installed, which is the OS drive (does that mean it's an NVMe? I didn't know there were consumer NVMes back then). It has another space for a 2.5" drive which is currently empty. When I looked up the manual for this model, it only mentioned the 2.5" bay being used for HDDs. Is there anything that would prevent me from installing a 2.5" SSD into that same bay?

Yes this is a M.2 NvME drive. Yes, you can install a 2.5" SSD drive to the secondary drive position. If you are just using it as storage and want more capacity, then a HDD would be a better choice. Since the M.2 is the boot drive, installing an SSD as a storage drive will speed it up slightly, you will not be able to have a large capacity drive for storage.

Thanks!

Honestly I just wanted to install a few extra games in there, not even big ones, so 1TB or even just 500GB is probably enough.
