Thanks for reply.
I am confused about cloning 1TB drive to a larger one. Do you mean to replace the 1TB drive with larger drive?
or Add another hard drive with 1TB drive? I wanted to buy another 1TB drive and Add it with 1TB drive inside CPU . Is it possible to Add 1TB ?
Thanks again!!

Then you need to take it to a service counter.

I see this is quite a small unit and it appears you need to have the work done. Better to have it done if you don't look inside to see if it can take another drive.

Again, I would not add another internal drive due to the size of the machine.
