Hello, can i use my 2nd internal hard drive on my laptop as a completely different c drive - is it possible to use it for programmes i might want to download ?
 
You can use a second HDD for storage, e.g. programs, pictures, other data. But if your operating system system is on the C drive, you want the second HDD to be D or E, or something else depending on whether or not you have an optical drive installed. When you add the second HDD, the OS should automatically assign a letter other than C.

Yes you can use the second hard drive for storage and installation files. Not your OS without a fresh installation but ok for programs and files. Make sure you have space in your laptop as well.
