Need to add 2nd drive, non raid.....

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have a 500gb drive right now...I'd like to go and get 1 or 2tb drive for storing video files. I don't really want to do a raid(i think).

If I simply connect a 2nd drive, will this come up as drive or :E, and will this have any effect on overall speed/performance?

I just need more space.

I highly recommend the Samsung F3 Spinpoint 1TB. I'm sure dozens of others will recommend it too. I've had it for a bit now, works great, no problems.. does what you pay for.

Not too expensive, either.
