    Default Re: can hard drives be merged together?

    They can be merged either using HW or SW Raid technique. For example, if you C drive is also 500GB, you can use RAID 0 to implement stripping and show them together as 1 GB HDD. However, if one of the disks fails, ALL is lost.

    As an alternative, some use RAID 1 to mirror backup the data, but this will not help you to get more space.

    It is a better solution to keep them separately - simply move some data from C drive to D drive and you are done. For extra space, you can also use external HDDs.
