I have a MacBook laptop with a serial number of XXXXXX - and I was wondering if I could upgrade my Hard Drive. It's around 128GB and is sooo close to being full that I am constantly getting messages letting me know to free up space.

I tried to run the Crucial scanner to see what drive it recommends, but it said it was unable to find anything.

What does the team here recommend? Happy to provide more info if needed.

Considering drive size it seems you have an SSD. Check your model and try to find some disassembly videos on YouTube. Or read documentation.

In some MacBooks SSDs are soldered in. In that case upgrade is not easy at all. Not something a hobbyist can do on his own.

Alternatives to internal hard drive swap are:
  1. External HDD
  2. Small thumbnail sized flash drives.
  3. They make "half sized" SD cards which fit into an SD card reader and do not stick out.
