I currently have 2 identical 320gb HDDs . The second of the 2 (which is currently empty following upgrade to Windows 7) is primarily used for my flight simulators and associated software.
My other hobby is photography and therefore My Pictures folder on primary HDD is becoming uncomfortably full. I also have a fast 37gb internall HDD which is also currently empty.
It makes sense in my eyes to increase the size of 1 HDD to 1GB and I am basically wondering whether to mirror primary to secondary, replace primary and then re-transfer back to primary? By so doing, I preserve My Pictures folder and give myself lots of space.
Sadly, my knowledge of such things is limited and I am therefore asking others opinions.
A) Is this the best way to do it?
B) Is mirroring failsafe?
C) Can I utilise the fast drive for just the OS?
Any thoughts, ideas or suggestions would be much appreciated.
Incidentally, I also have externals of 750mb and 200mb. The latter is used as a Personal Folders backup.
