It's hard to tell who you were asking the question to, in reference to which post?

I was wondering who the question was intended for?

Multiple hard drives are used for storing anything the user feels the need to store, save or backup.
If you've ever had a hard drive failure and lost data, then you tend to keep data (system backups, music, pictures, movies, etc) on a couple of drives.

Everyone should keep a system image backup as a minimum.
These should be stored on a separate HDD in case of HDD failure.
This will enable you to restore everything as it was when you did the backup, you won't have to re-install OS and programs, and will take 15-20 minutes.

If you have more than one computer in your house, then you need more backup and storage space. With the current reasonable HDD prices it's a good idea to keep your backups on a separate HDD, external HDD works best.

If you have say, five computers in your house it wouldn't be unusual to have a total of 10 or more HDDs.

This is basic system recovery planning.
