Thread Starter 
Hi all, Adding an additional harddrive to windows 7, does this work the same as win xp? Because soon i'm going to install win 7 on an ssd, then install a new seagate 320gb hdd for games and such. Is this right?.....thank you

I'm not entirely sure what your question is here.

If you're trying to confirm that you can install Windows 7 on an SSD and then use a 320GB hard drive for storage, yes, that's what most SSD users will do

Oh, right, I see

No, Windows Vista introduced a new version of Disk Management, which is pretty much the same in Windows 7. It's not perfect but it does so much more than the XP one did.



What is it that you specifically need to know about it? If you put a 320GB drive in there after installing Windows 7, it should appear as a massive load of unallocated space. You'll just need to right click it and select "new simple volume". Then all you really need to do it give it a name and drive letter, and wait for it to format (shouldn't take long).

Easiest way I find of getting to it is by hitting start on your keyboard, typing "partition" and hitting enter.

Because it's so slow to right click on my computer
