    Two options.
    First, replace your HDD with an SSD. This one is alright and inexpensive:

    You will not believe how much it changes your computing experience.

    Then you will be free to install your old HDD as a data drive.

    Second, buy a second HDD and install it as a data drive:

    If your laptop doesn't have a HDD expansion slot internally, get a USB hard drive:

  6. 2 things...
    1: i see your computer has sata, just sort the drives by anything sata.
    2: groundrat didnt even take the time to google an Inspiron 518 he actually suggested an SSD and thinks you have a laptop.

    Id just go with some cheaper seagate drive, like a barracuda... matbe a WD. you would want to look at the 3.5 inch drives.
