My XPS 8900 has one hard drive with space left and a smallish SSD drive that has run out of space. According to the manual, this computer can hold three hard drives and one SSD. I'm therefore thinking that the easiest solution to the SSD problem will If I install a second hard drive and figure out a way to use that as a supplement to the SSD. So I have some questions.
- If I install the second hard drive, can I copy some of the files from the SSD to this drive and continue to use the SSD as the boot drive?
- If I copy all the SSD's files to the new drive, will it then become the boot drive? Will this result in a painful slow down of the boot up process?
- Maybe I should just ask what you experts suggest is the best approach. I need more space, and the SSD holds most of the programs and other information. How should I handle things if I get a second hard drive and use it in conjunction with the SSD?
