No you can't add more space to existing partitions, unless you move data on your second hard drive. 2. You only need to format your new hard drive. 3. You can have a RAID 0 configuration provided your motherboard support it. But it may involved formatting / re-installation. pepe2907 August 28, 2011 10:46:27 AM "3.

NO, you CAN'T have RAID 0 on two different HDDs and your new disk will probably be different from your old one. But you may try JBOD. 1, 2) http://www.petri.co.il/extend-disk-partition-vista-wind...

I wouldn't worry about using RAID. laumiulun September 14, 2011 5:20:34 AM Best answer selected by laumiulun. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
