Windows 7: Drice guru: Expending SSD C drive by adding a new SSD drive: Possible?

Drice guru: Expending SSD C drive by adding a new SSD drive: Possible?

My SSD drive is 85% full so before having problem, I need to find a solution

In my old time, I know that it was not possible to expand C: drive by adding a new one, but it was in the pre-Windows time, yes I did work with DOS system with one 360k floppy drive...

But now, is it possible? Someone send me an article, about that, but it was in German. Even with translation, I did not understand.

Any help appreciated

drive is 85% full
Full of what... please inform about space occupied by system restore, hiberfile.sys, virtual memory (paging file). Lots of space to be reclaimed by taking control over these.

Also, run ccleaner to delete temp files, & do a disk cleanup, incl. 'system files'. If you got large user files (video etc) on C, move them to another drive.

From your specs, 'SSD 120G from Intel', should be more than ample to run OS (even several OS's), programs + a good collection of user files.
