I have a Lenovo T470 with a 256GB PCI Nvme and I'd like to get "downgrade" to a 1TB SATA SSD.

I don't need the speed of the PCI NVme drive nor the much higher price for the upgrade.

Is it possible to put a 1TB SATA SSD in my T470 given that configuration? Can it replace the PCI NVme or is there space to make it an additional drive?

Attached are 2 photos of the inside of my machine

Thank you.
