Try to figure out in the task manager what is using up 100% of your disk.

And if you don't launch chrome? Does another program use the 100%?

Don't.  A fat 1tb SSD is a better way to spend the money.

 

If 1tb is out of your price range, 480-512gb is still better than optane.

Depending on the M.2 it can support PCIe (NVME) or SATA.

 

And yes, there are SATA M.2 drives.

Get a SATA drive (most users don't need NVMe)

M.2 slot has to support SATA specifically.  I have only seen docs mentioning PCIe for that laptop.

 

My Lenovo is PCIe only for example.

The nitro 5 supports both. Most models anymore support both. Supporting one standard only is on the rare side. Although Lenovo seems to be going this way.
