Hi Javajosh,

The Dell product group team has tested the Dell Mini 12 with 40,60 and 80 GB PATA hard drives. There could have been two ways to upgrade the hard drive:
1. Using a caddy and installing it in place of the optical drive: This wont be possible as this system doesnt have any internal optical drive.
2. Using a PATA to SATA convertor : This will not be possible as there is not enough space inside the system to connect a SATA hard drive with a connector.

If you want to store more data, the only option you have is to use an external hard drive with the USB port.

Hope this helps. Please reply for any further issues.

Thanks and regards
Abhishek B
