I began by installing a 1TB Samsung 970 Pro SSD into one of the M.2 NVMe slots. I installed a new OS onto that drive. No problem. I then removed the 500GB drive and will replace it (eventually) with a 4TB Samsung 680 Pro for data storage.
Meanwhile, I installed a 2TB Samsung 970 EVO in the second M.2 NVMe slot. However, when I rebooted my computer only recognized a 232GB drive in that space. I deleted the volume, and re-formatted with the same result. It's like the drive is being recognized as a 250GB SSD rather than a 2TB SSD.
I suspect that this may be a faulty SSD. However, before returning it to Amazon, I wanted to check with the experts in this forum to see if there may be another explanation. What do you think? Is there a disk configuration issue for M.2 NVMe SSD that I'm missing? Or, is this simply a faulty SSD?
BTW, I purchased 4 sticks of Samsung 32GB DDR4 2666MHz memory on eBay for $560. I installed two in the back on the computer, and they work fine. My step will be to gently remove the keyboard to install the other two sticks.
