How do you put hard drives together?

I just got a brand new computer and decided I needed to put some of the stuff I had on my old computer on it using a storage unit. Now I have two hard drives and most of my computer updates are going to the first one. I'm almost out of room, Help!!

What you need is a RAID controller. Windows does not have out of the box support for software RAID, but you can buy a hardware RAID controller cheap, and hardware RAID is better anyway. Then set up a RAID 0 array. Be aware this WILL require you to reinstall the OS and all. Also, if one hard drive fails, the entire array is dead with a RAID 0. the easier option is just a bigger drive.

You can get a free trial of Acronis Disk Director and move everything(even Windows itself) to the new one, but if you don't have so much experience then i recommend you to bring a technician that will do it for you and show you how.
