I currently use a 320GB HDD in my pc, it is split into C and D drives. D drive being the main storage drive. However it is pretty much filled up. If I buy a 1TB drive, can I combine it with my D drive to merge it into 1 single drive. I dont really want a drive E.

What do you mean "merge" it?
#2
No .It will be E

You can. Spanned volume and dynamic disks are the words you want to look out for in the Disk Manager deely.

If your current hard drive is partitioned into a C and D drive you can combine the two relatively easily.

Why not combine C and D instead, much easier, I really wouldn't do it across drives.

C is probably a windows/os partition, so you wouldn't really want to merge it.

OP why not just buy a 1tb drive and move everything from your current drive to that one?

I could do that, but dont want to turn the 320GB drive into just a windows OS partition.

I mean install the OS on to the 1TB drive as well. You could keep the 320gb if you wanted for when you filled the 1TB.

Take a look at flexraid view or flexraid live I think one of them allows this.

Surely just install a 1tb, which will become e, then move everything from d to e, then delete the d partition, then you will have c being 320gb OS drive, e being 1tb storage drive

Well as your newer 1tb drive will be faster just clone your 320gb drive across to it and use your 320gb drive for backing up.
