    As @brummyfan2 said it all depends on the model specs there are many variants so without us knowing your model/specs we cannot advise

    1 HDD if not using external drives.
    2 if SSD is included. (One 2.5" drive bay and one M.2 SSD 2280 slot)
    5 if using all USB ports for external drives 😯

    True but you would need to have the drives powered externally as a hub that large wouldn't have enough juice to power all those HDDs.

    Yup the best do you remember another oem brand from toshiba excelstor i had a few 3.5 80gb when they came out and when the largest hdd was only 100gb at the time this was years ago as you can see, i think i was still on windows 98 se or testing win me (rubbish) and 2000 (good but not for gaming) the came the special one XP (best ms os ever in my opinion) 2nd best 7 and now n-1 because there is no more xp support lol  still remember the good old times working with a 486 :p and when getting a vcd movie would take up to 3 months with a 56k modem and we were pretty happy back then hehehe
