Wooo, no backup
I take it you like your memories of pictures and what have you. Yet, you limit yourself not storing off PC. This just going to lead to heartache should the HD ever fail no matter what the improvement. Ext. HDs tend to fail far sooner than int. media but that's up to you. I strongly suggest you burn your memories to CD/DVD/BD discs in order to save something. Yes, you can add more storage media, but that's NOT PERMANENT, if can possibility fail. Do burn some or all of your important memories and then add the added int. storage to a larger HD. You can replace the current HD or add another one depending on your desktop setup. Understand any backup already done or future plans will be an added safety storage of those memories. if you can't understand that, find out the hard way, even if your improve your current storage media one way or another. HP provides generic help in added or replacement HD, just check your model# for details or find basic info via the HP support website. Beware, that most HP PCs may not always be capable "for long" to support a 2nd HD if so done plus the added heat source and wattage needs(PSU), just a thought to ponder. AND what other posters have suggested makes alot of sense.
