Here is a link to the QuickSpec for the StoreEasy 1000 family back when it was based on ProLiant Gen 8 servers. as your StoreEasy 1540 is.  Looks like this is a tower with a max of 4 drives.  In order to expand the capacity, you would need to use an external drive enclosure. Page 12 lists the options for externally supported enclosures and page 23 talks more about expanding storage. I'd suggest you contact an HPE partner that knows StoreEasy.  You can also try chat on the StoreEasy home page
