    Dell Inspiron 5593 spec

    It's not clear from Dell's specs that you can use a SATA M.2 dive in that laptop. A PCI-E 3.0 X4 NVMe one is specified. It'd also be faster than a SATA drive.

    I opened the laptop to look at the ssd. It has one notch on the edge board connector where as the one I have has two notches. The one I ordered earlier today also has one notch, so I'm hoping it will work. Another related question: there is a spot for a sata hdd. I have an extra one I took out of my previous laptop. To install it, just mount it and the laptop would reconize it and all I would do is format it? It already has win7 and other programs and files on it and this hdd would be used for more storage.

    One notch is good.

    This laptop uses a bracket plus a cable to mount a 2.5" drive. If none is present, you'll want to buy them. I don't know how easy it is to get things like that directly from Dell, but you can find them on eBay. Example: Dell Inspiron 15 5593 15.6" OEM Laptop HARD DRIVE CADDY + CONNECTOR DXKT3 0DXKT3 | eBay (A little pricey for removed from equipment, but I don't know what Dell would charge.)

    According to the service manual (https://topics-cdn.dell.com/pdf/insp...nual_en-us.pdf), the screws are M3X3.
