Having problems with your HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook ?

I want to link 2 installed hard drives on my laptop

\015 My drive c: says its down to 28% free space (it's 105GB), I've installed a 2nd hard drive, 320GB and want to link the two drives to read as one drive. Is this possible? or should I move/re-install software onto the 2nd hard drive. In other words, I'd like to make the larger drive my main drive.\015

Answers :
