Plan to install a 500g SSD drive

I have a 111g SSD drive for my Cdrive and it was somewhat complicated back in the day when I built this setting up the bit locker. Do I have to do the same thing to use this 500g SSD as a drive for processing videos?

It's probably already formatted. If you're going to use it as a secondary drive, then all you need to do is install TRIM on it, and make sure that it is working correctly. TRIM will prolong the life of your SSD.
