Running 2 hard drives?

So currently i have a WD 500gb 5400 RPM HDD installed on my PC. I just got a WD 750GB 720RPM. What is the best way for me to utilize the both of these? Currently my operating system and files are installed on the Smaller HDD.

  1. what you can do is use a disk clonning utility to make an image/clone of the drive having OS installed and copy that image over to the new harddrive.

    her is one free utility u can use

    Also look at Acronis disk director. it has disk cloning option i believe. u can use trial
    I also know of Acronis Migrate easy but haven't tried it and form the comments the trial version is not goodt at all.

    ofc, after clonning from old disk to new one, you'll need to make that disk as bootable one.
