Hi, I have two internal hard drives now, a 1.5TB and a 750GB.

I can't for the life of me find anywhere online that can tell me how to merge these two internal hard drives so that my computer treats them as one, or if that is even possible!

I'm not talking about merging partitions, which there is a LOT of information bout.

Thanks for your time,

Kent.

Its called Raid 0, but I wouldn't advise doing it

2 disks are treated as one volume, but if any of the disks in the RAID array fail, the whole Raid array is corrupted, so basically you are doubling any chance of data loss
