Looking for a software to extend c: drive usind a second drive

Hello

Is there any software that could allow to extend C:\ drive using a 2' hard disk. My SSD is getting full and I heard that there is a way to do that. The information that I was given is in German and even with the translation to French I can't understand

Hello Martin,

This would be a spanned volume on two dynamic disks.

You do not want to do this on a hard drive containing your operating system. Doing so would render Windows unbootable.

Depending on your situation, it may be best to either get a larger drive to replace the SSD with, or add a second large drive to use as a data drive to keep all of your saved files on instead of the SSD.

To save space on the SSD, you could do this below to be able to access the files from your libraries with the files actually located where you like instead. Hope this helps,
Shawn
